ALBERTA: Former cop Harjinder Grewal wins United Conservative Party’s nomination in Edmonton-Manning

HARJINDER Grewal was on Tuesday nominated as the United Conservative Party’s candidate in Edmonton-Manning for the 2019 provincial election.

UCP Leader Jason Kenney said in a statement: “Today, more than 1,000 United Conservative members in Edmonton-Manning cast ballots for their preferred candidate for the next election from amongst four great contestants. I would like to congratulate Harjinder Grewal on winning an incredibly competitive race.”

Kenney added: “Harjinder has had a long and distinguished career as a detective with the Edmonton Police Service. Upon immigrating to Canada from India, Harjinder received a Mechanical Engineering diploma from NAIT before deciding to begin a 30-year career in policing. In 2013, Harjinder was recognized with the Kiwanis “Top Cop” award for his volunteer contributions to the community.

“For almost 20 years, he dedicated his time to the Edmonton District Soccer Association, serving on the board and for six years, as president. Harjinder is a father of three and his dedication to the community through policing and volunteerism make him a valuable member of the United Conservative team as we work to present Albertans with a common-sense alternative to the NDP. I am pleased to welcome Harjinder as the United Conservative candidate in Edmonton-Manning.

“I would also like to thank Kulshan Gill, Gurcharan Garcha, Dakota Drouillard, and their teams for their participation in the democratic process and dedication to our movement.”
