Jasveen Rattan will be the Conservative candidate in the upcoming federal election. Dr. Rattan has a Ph.D. in Recreation and Leisure Studies.
In a bit of tone-deaf Tweeting, after spending her birthday in York South—Weston for one day of campaigning, Rattan said that she has “heard your concerns” and “will bring the change you are asking for.”
Call me skeptical, but I think that the issues in our riding could, perhaps, do with a bit more study than a day allows.
Historically, York South–Weston has been a centre-left riding. The Conservatives have never held it, but they did have a strong showing in the last provincial election. Mark DeMontis, the PC candidate who was running again federally, withdrew early in the campaign.
