In an exclusive interview with Y Media Group Editor and CEO Yudhvir Jaswal, Nikki Kaur, Brampton’s former Mayoral candidate, said she was terminated from her job at the City of Brampton.
“We thank (Kaur) for her service at the city and wish her well in her future endeavours,” the internal statement from the City read.
“I will not be silenced and will never stop standing up for what is right,” Kaur told Y Media. “I have retained legal counsel and will fight this injustice.”
Kaur said she had taken a leave of absence during her mayoral campaign. “I ran a strong campaign for Mayor of Brampton to restore integrity and honesty at City Hall. Last night, I finished second to Patrick Brown in the election.”
Nikki Kaur thanked all the residents who supported and loved her campaign and said she would continue fighting for the rights of Bramptonians.
“We are building a campaign to create awareness of people’s issues,” she said.
According to unofficial results, Brown won Monday’s election with a significant majority. His vote share was 59.65 per cent, while Kaur’s was 25.55 per cent.
