Parm Gill - Conservative Candidate (According to translation) Calls Edmonton Area Residents "Rednecks"

Interesting indeed:

Conservative Candidate Parm Gill spoke on the "Sardari" TV program on Vision TV today. In his interview - in attempting to explain how Tim Uppal got the MP-ship in Edmonton East, the translation of the program clearly indicates he called the locals "rednecks" and called it a "most redneck area".

Very interesting.

Wonder if Conservative HQ knows about this? Wonder what the "base" thinks?

There is no link... Vision TV does not put all shows online. This program - "Sardari" - runs Saturday. It is a "Punjabi" language program. This show was "new" and I believe aired for the first time today. I do believe "Sardari" - like all Vision programs is on a "repeat" pattern, and will air again within 6-8hrs (evening BC time). My translator was watching it today, and did a "Say what???" when he heard the comments made by Gill. I also heard the comments, but asked for a clear translation.

I would act fast to contact Vision and get a transcript of the program, since it seemed the host of the show was pretty pro-Gill, and clearly seemed to endorse him several times. Don't want the tapes to magically get erased. LPC should move fast on this.
