Other Notes:
To put things in perspective, Sikhs — now numbering well over half a million in Canada — are by far the biggest group among those hailing, or descending from immigrants, from the subcontinent. Since they were the first group from the area to land in Canada’s British Columbia province in the last decade of the 19th century, it is not surprising that Sikhs made history in Canada when Ujjal Singh Dosanjh was elected as the premier of British Columbia in Feb 2000. Today, eight out of the nine MPs in the Canadian parliament are Sikhs Punjabis, including two — Joginder ‘Jinny’ Kaur Sims and Neena Kaur Grewal.
