Hello neighbour, I am Gurpreet Bains and I am running to be your regional councillor in wards 2 and 6. I have the vision and determination to create a Brampton that we are proud to call home.
I attended school at Williams Parkway and North Park before completing my law degree at the University of New Brunswick. I returned to Brampton to open my legal practice in 2014. As a lawyer, I worked with Brampton residents from many different backgrounds. My professional experience has prepared me to advocate for my constituents responsibly.
Through knocking on doors, I’ve learned that many of our concerns are the same. We all want a safe community, improved road and transit infrastructure, a striving economy, and a trustworthy local government. I am committed to achieving this and so much more by working collaboratively with my council colleagues.
My top priority as your regional councillor will be violence prevention. Violent crime has affected far too many families and I have a plan to work with the community and law enforcement to provide youth with mentorship and education on anti-violence strategies, mental health, and skills development so that our youth are equipped to deal with confrontation and hardship.
In order to combat traffic gridlock and congestion, I plan to modernize our traffic lights system and implement traffic-calming methods to promote road safety. I vow to advocate for a strong transit network that will better connect the people who work, live, and invest in our city.
To encourage economic development in Brampton, I plan to collaborate with local innovation hubs, post-secondary institutions and medical centres while focusing on emerging sectors such as cybersecurity to establish Brampton as a model city, thereby attracting foreign investment.
A lack of transparency in council has led to a distrust between council and the voters. I want to remedy this by hiring an independent auditor general to monitor the city’s spending and remaining accessible to my constituents.
What allows me to stand out from the other candidates is the fact that I have a plan to create a safer and brighter future for Brampton. I am competent, passionate, and motivated. I promise to dedicate the next four years to empowering the community and voicing their concerns in council.
