Sukh Dhaliwal resigns as B.C. Liberal candidate amid tax-evasion charges
The B.C. Liberals are looking for a new candidate to run in Surrey-Panorama.
Today (February 8), the party announced that former Newton-North Delta MP Sukh Dhaliwal, who is facing tax-evasion charges, has stepped down as a candidate.
“I would like to thank Sukh for his commitment to the Party and our leader,” B.C. Liberal Party president Sharon White said in a statement.
“We will be moving ahead soon with nominations throughout Surrey and look forward to announcing our full Surrey team,” White added.
The date of a new Surrey-Panorama candidate selection meeting has yet to be determined.
