Star nominee announces run to be NDP candidate in Surrey-Serpentine River

As the coming provincial election inches closer, candidates from the left and right are announcing their run, defecting from their parties, or dropping out altogether.

Baltej Singh Dhillon announced Tuesday he is seeking the nomination to be the New Democrat candidate for Surrey-Serpentine River.

A police officer for almost 30 years, Singh Dhillon was the first RCMP officer to wear a turban whilst in uniform.

“I am excited to announce that I’m putting my name forward as a nominee to be the BC NDP candidate for the Surrey Serpentine River riding,” Singh Dhillon shared on X Tuesday morning.

“I hope to bring all of my lived, volunteer and professional experience to serve my neighbours and residents in this riding.”

As of last week, the BC NDP were leading the three major parties, according to polling by the Angus Reid Institute.

Angus Reid explained Thursday that the NDP is in front with 41 per cent of voter intention — an 11 per cent lead over the BC Conservatives at 30 per cent.

In third, BC United was chosen by 16 per cent of those surveyed. “This represents a 50 per cent loss from the party’s 2020 election popular vote,” Angus Reid stated.
