Top Sikh car dealer backs PM Harper in Canada election

Toronto, Oct 19 (IANS) An India-born Sikh car dealer in Canada has backed Canada Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Monday’s election to the 338-member parliament, a media report said.

Nav Bhatia is a common name in the Canada car-dealer industry and Prime Minister Harper dropped by at Bhatia’s Mississauga Hyundai Dealership on Sunday, Toronto Sun reported.

Bhatia said Harper has been one of Canada’s best ever prime ministers and deserves to be re-elected.

“Things are going well and people are doing well. We would not want that to change,” he added.

Bhatia praised the prime minister, saying that despite a worldwide economic collapse, the country has grown and people are flourishing.

“A lot of people came and lived in apartments then moved up to a condominium and now own a house,” he said.

Meanwhile, Harper poured heaps of praise on Bhatia saying “hard working” Bhatia was the kind of employer his government wants to protect with low taxes.

Bhatia came to Canada from India in 1984 with a mechanical engineering degree. He was mistaken for a taxi driver one day and then he decided to change the stereotype, the report said.

Bhatia is one of the biggest and most famous car dealers in Canada.
