BC Liberal leader Christy Clark is perfectly happy to have former Liberal MP Sukh Dhaliwal run for her in the upcoming election even though he wrote a letter of support for a now murdered gangster:
The former Liberal MP is finally answering questions about a letter he wrote in 2008.
Dhaliwal wrote to a U-S district court judge on parlimentary letter head saying he had met Ranjit Cheema at community engagments, and that the one-time Bindy Johal associate appeared fully rehabilited.
This past May, Chima was gunned down in south Vancouver, in an apparent gang hit.
REPORTER:”Do you still believe thought that he was rehabilitated?”
“I made those statements at the time. I haven’t had any…interactions with him or of the others. I haven’t followed up so I can’t comment.”
As to why he wrote the letter in the first place, Dhaliwal says it was a request from Cheema’s family (see here)
