Narinder (Nina) Grewal , Conservative, Member of Parliament from Fleetwood - Port Kells

I am a proud Canadian, wife, and mother of two who understands the challenges and concerns faced by ordinary citizens in their daily lives. I am not a seasoned politician. I am simply a person with deep values who cares about her community and the people in it, and who would like to make this country a safer and more prosperous place for us and for future generations. I also believe in a government that’s accountable to the people it represents, and not to friends and cronies.

Being an active member of the Reform Party since 1996, and of the Canadian Alliance and Conservative Party of Canada thereafter has taught me 'the ropes' of political process and political life. I have been a board member of the Surrey Central Constituency Association, have helped with three election campaigns and three leadership races. I have signed-up memberships, dropped literature at doorsteps, participated in rallies and townhall meetings, have worked the phones on behalf of Conservative candidates and have listened to the many concerns of people in our community.

In the last 8 years, I’ve attended National Assemblies, AGMs, Conventions, the United Alternative Assembly and the Official Opposition Caucuses. I’ve also helped to organize BBQs, fundraise, have acted as a volunteer advocate for constituents.

Although my great-grandfather contributed to the development of this great country and died here in 1906, my family and I chose Canada to be our own home. Prior to that, I traveled the world and lived in other countries such as Japan (where I was born), India (where I was schooled at the Convent of Jesus and Mary, and later earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and English Literature), and Africa--where I was a partner in the family business.

It was in Liberia that I also developed a very deep appreciation of freedom and democracy. On a daily basis, I witnessed suffering and disaster first-hand in the bloody civil war that killed 1 in 10 and displaced 6 out of 10 people in that country. You can only imagine how many were raped, abused or disabled. I have seen young people who wanted to go to school or get medicines but could not afford to do so. Many people could not even afford to eat a single meal a day. Not a day goes by that I'm not incredibly thankful that I am now a Canadian and live in this great country of ours. But the Liberal government in the driver’s seat has some serious problems with its vision, approach, administration and direction.

The Liberals have continuously eroded family values and have proposed legislation that works against families--the most important building-block of our society. They’ve demonstrated a decade-long dithering on issues such as the definition of marriage, minimum age of consensual sex, child porn, child taxes rebates, tax breaks for stay home parents, religious freedom, and political correctness. All of these issues need tough lobbying and initiatives in Parliament--and that's exactly the role that I intend to fulfill, when elected.

Since the day I moved here with my family, I've contributed to making Canada an even a better country. I've always done that through my community and volunteer work. But now that my children are grown-up and attending post-secondary institutions, I feel that the time has come for me--a passionate mother who has sacrificed her career for the sake of her children and family--to do even more. That is why I'm asking for your support to be your voice in Parliament: a principled, strong, caring voice that reflects your values and priorities, and acts as a strong advocate on your behalf. That is my promise to you.

Warmest regards,

Narinder (Nina) Grewal
