Questionnaire Response

Preet Singh - Radisson

1. Why did you decide to run in the 2016 Manitoba election?

I’m running to help protect and strengthen health care, schools, child care and accessible post-secondary education, all supported by a green economy that creates good jobs for a sustainable future. We cannot take these things for granted but need to keep fighting for them. I chose to run because of my lifelong belief in supporting and working for my community. People told me that my leadership and dedication would serve Radisson and the NDP well. I humbly hope to commit my experience, ideas, and energy to representing the people of Radisson, and fighting for a better Manitoba.

2. What experience will you bring to complement your role as MLA?

I am a family man. My wife Sonia and I have two young children, and have made our home in Winnipeg for most of my adult life. I’m an engineer with an MBA, and I work for a major computer solutions company. My work has given me extensive experience collaborating with diverse groups of people to find solutions that work for everyone. I am also very active in the community as a volunteer at Siloam Mission, at my children’s school and as an employment coach helping new Canadians find good jobs here in Manitoba.

3. Is there anything in particular you would like to change in our province? In your electoral division?

I would work hard to build the QuickCare clinic in Radisson to provide more accessible health care services to local families. QuickCare clinics are a proven benefit to communities because they make sure urgent heath care is accessible and close by, and they take the pressure off hospital emergency rooms, meaning they are great for the health care system as a whole. That kind of win-win approach to public services is great for Radisson, and also for the province. I want to keep Manitoba investing in smart, effective public services that improve people’s lives.

4. What key issue(s) / topic(s) would like to stand for in your role as MLA, and why is it important to you?

I have been knocking on doors across the Radisson constituency, and I’ve heard from families that their priorities are affordable and accessible child care, the environment and green jobs, seniors’ supports and personal care homes, better roads and highways, and high-quality schools and hospitals. As a parent of two young kids, and as a job coach for new Canadians, I’ve seen first hand how important and connected all these issues are. I’ll be personally committed to fight for each and every one as the MLA for Radisson.

5. What is one thing in particular that you value about the electoral division that you wish to represent?

Radisson is a growing, thriving, extremely diverse community. I love the energy and possibility I feel living there, and especially as I talk to people all across the riding. As a parent, community member and volunteer I can relate to many of the issues Radisson residents are concerned about. I will work hard for the community and ensure they have a strong voice representing them in the legislature.

6. Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

I chose to run for the NDP because they believe everyone matters. The NDP is an inclusive party that stands up for hard-working and middle-class families. That kind of inclusive outlook inspires me, and is why I believe the NDP is the best party to represent Manitobans.
