Indian name. Canada has a large Indian minority and they're doing quite well, politically at least.
They had one Canadian per table full of Americans to help stimulate conversation, and my table got Ujjal, who was then a provincial cabinet minister in British Columbia from the New Democratic Party. The NDP is to the left of our Democratic Party, even to the left of the Howard Dean wing.
It was a fascinating lunch.
Ujjal Dosanjh is a native of India. He served as Premier of British Columbia and is a Liberal Party delegate from Vancouver.
"Dosanjh, who hails from Dosanjh Kalan, near Phagwara, and moved to Canada as a teenager, is a lawyer by profession and headed the NDP Government in British Columbia. After the last provincial elections a couple of years ago, he quit politics and joined the law practice of his two sons.
