"Pavan Bahia’s dedication to his community through his work in the public service and active volunteering mean he has the first-hand experience to fight for the priorities of the people of Richmond—Queensborough in Victoria. Under the NDP, life is getting more expensive each and every day, and we need to elect leaders like Pavan Bahia so we can work united towards real progress for British Columbians.”
