It is important to MP Sidhu that she stay connected to her community. For this reason, Sonia frequently hosts and attends community events all around #BramptonSouth. These events give Sonia an opportunity to engage with people from her riding, to get to know them, and to see what issues are important to them. These types of connections are essential because it allows Sonia to bring the thoughts and concerns that are important to her constituents back to Ottawa.
On May 16, 2018 Sonia, along with MP Marc Serré held a town hall in Brampton South to discuss issues that were important to seniors and the implementation of a #NationalSeniorsStrategy. In Sonia’s role as a member of the Standing Committee on Health and the Chair of the All-Party Diabetes Caucus in Parliament, she is constantly thinking of the impact that her work has on seniors and always tries to make recommendations with the best interest of seniors in mind.
Brampton South is well positioned to provide families the tools and opportunities they need to succeed, and MP Sidhu was proud that so many volunteers came together for the #WomenBuildGTA launch to make today possible.
Sonia gives her well wishes to all the families who are embarking on a new chapter of their lives in #Brampton!
