. This former cricket legend captained Team India in 47 tests during the 90s. We met during my many visits to Delhi. As Mayor, I commit to growing the sport of cricket in Brampton. #brampoli
Honoured to be endorsed tonight live on Channel Y by 6 time Liberal MP Honourable Gurbax Malhi. Gurbax was the first South Asian and Sikh MP in Canada. Humbled by his support! #Brampton #brampoli
It was a pleasure to personally install a sign at former Premier Bill Davis’ residence in downtown #Brampton
with my wife Genevieve. We thought this installation deserved a personal touch! #brampoli
Love headlines like this!
We had a private ceremony this weekend in a Chapel in Kleinburg where I was lucky enough to marry the incredibly smart, beautiful, insightful, funny and wonderful @genevievegualtieri

Joined by numerous #Brampton
Seniors Clubs as I announced my plan for free seniors public transit fares. Seniors have built our City. It’s time we help make life more affordable for them. This will be done at no cost to taxpayers rather though optimized municipal advertising opportunities. #brampoli
Today, I announced my plans for a state-of-the-art multi-sport stadium.
World-class facility will be designed to meet technical standards for hosting national and international matches
Cricket, lacrosse and kabaddi are huge sports in Brampton, but the current facilities leave much to be desired. Having recreation pitches that meet or exceed provincial, national and international standards is important if we are to encourage local athletes to strive for excellence. Too often our citizens are discouraged from participation at higher levels of competition because our City lacks the proper facilities in which they can train for and play the sport they love.
This morning I am announcing that, as Mayor, I will lead the effort to create a public-private partnership that will build a world class, cricket/multi-dimensional sports stadium right here in Brampton. This state-of-the-art facility will be designed to accommodate a multitude of sports at the highest levels, including cricket, kabaddi, soccer, lacrosse and field hockey.
In concept, this facility will be similar to the Lansdowne Park redevelopment recently completed in Ottawa. In addition to a state-of-the-art multi-sport stadium, the property will include ancillary sports facilities, such as basketball courts and a skate park. We will also investigate the inclusion of an e-sports arena, one suitable for professional events.
The facility will have restaurants and retail stores, and will also feature green spaces and water features. Parking will be located underground to maximize land use and reduce the project’s environmental footprint.
The new stadium project will bring more economic opportunities to our City. Brampton loses tourism dollars every time a major sports event goes elsewhere because our City lacks the proper facilities to host. The Global T20 Canada Cricket championship took place in King this summer, not Brampton, because City facilities were deemed inadequate by organizers.
The facility will also be made available as much as possible to leagues and recreation programs delivered by the City and local sports
Spoke to the YMS Cricket Club today about my plans to enhance recreation in Brampton. A healthy and active community is less reliant on the health care system. Unfortunately, fees for recreation in Brampton are some of the highest in the GTA and there is a real shortage of recreation in Brampton. Just look at the GT20 cricket tournament which went to King Township instead of Brampton. As Mayor, I will work to build a healthy and active community.
