CALGARY, Canada—Honoring the memory of Manmeet Singh Bhullar, it was announced yesterday that a park is to be constructed and named Manmeet Singh Bhullar Park in the memory of the Sikh MP who was killed in a tragic accident whilst helping out a stranded motorist during the winter months of 2015.
There is already a school named in his memory due to the positive, progressive and outreaching demeanor that Manmeet Singh was widely known to have.
Manmeet Singh was a Member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta. At 28 years of age, he became the youngest member elected to Alberta’s 27th legislature, in 2008. He was also the youngest politician to serve as a parliamentary assistant or secretary in Canada at the time. He later became a Cabinet Minister in 2011.
A strong advocate for fairness in business and social justice, Manmeet was recognized for his contributions to the community and it’s due to his campaign for green, that the park’s go ahead was granted in the first place.
Sheila Taylor, the Parks Foundation Calgary foundation executive director said, “It was with Manmeet’s support that the project really took hold. In fact, without his direct support, the Greenway project would not be where it is today.”
The park should be ready for members of the public to enjoy by late 2018.
