KAMLOOPS – Calling the Harper government “ruthless, arrogant and out of touch,” Kamloops lawyer Bill Sundhu made his pitch for a federal New Democratic Party nomination in a press release this morning.
Sundhu cited several issues Canadians face - saying they are either “ignored or trivialized or worse – belittled.” He cites climate change, heath care, human rights and inequality, first nations issues, child care and job creation as issues in need of further attention and reform.
“These are but some of the main issues that concern Canadians, and they concern me,” he wrote.
Sundhu says he decided to seek federal nomination for the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo riding after hearing concerns from community members and from his notion the Harper conservatives have brought “cynicism and a coarseness that diminishes Parliament”.
He states many are worried that the sacrifices and choices made by previous generations of Canadians – to build a society based on fairness and equality of opportunity is in peril.
Sundhu, a former provincial court judge, currently works as a lawyer at a local private firm. His experiences include public involvement in human rights affairs including and apart from his work with The Hague’s International Criminal Court. He has studied at the University of British Columbia, Oxford and Harvard Universities.
He seeks to represent the riding in the next federal election tentatively scheduled for Oct. 19, 2015.
