PROFILE: Gurp Chahal, councillor

Gurp Chahal is a dance instructor, field hockey coach and community volunteer.

I have been lived in Mission since 1999, with my wife, two kids and parents. I received bachelor of arts degree in India.

After working in a ceder mill I joined EV Logistics in 2001. There I served as a shop steward, but for the last four years, I have been the lead hand with more responsibilities and leadership.

I volunteer here with the social development planning commission, and Mission Community Services Society (Seniors Connection).

I have taught bhangra dance at the Leisure Centre, and currently I am coaching field hockey with the Abbotsford Field Hockey Club.

It’s my passion to work for the people of Mission. I am against the P3 concept. I would like to see a freeze on property taxes for the next few years. I will work to improve public transportation, and we need to work with authorities to lower crime and keep our streets safe.
