Conservative Candidate Kay Khilvinde Hale Running In Richmond-Queensborough

RICHMOND – Kay Khilvinde Hale is running In Richmond-Queensborough for the BC Conservative party.

Residing in Richmond for nearly 30 years, Kay was born in Hong Kong of Indian decent. Wife, mother and grandmother of 4, all born in Canada. Anowner operator of Management Consultancy Firm in Hong Kong and London.  Since 2007 she has been a licensed Realtor with the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, works mainly in Richmond.

“The endorsement of a fine candidate with deep family values, private-sector work experience and lots of community involvement is another sign that the B.C. Conservative Party will be competitive in numerous constituencies around the province,” said Corbin Mitchell, president of the Party.

Khilvinder, attended elementary school in Hong Kong and completed her formal education in London, England earning an MBA from Hong Kong University in 1976.   Her father a British Subject, served during World War II in Hong Kong and held captive as POW during the Japanese Occupation.   Along with her seven siblings, she grew up in a cosmopolitan environment in Hong Kong. She spent 3 years in Indian to learn the Punjabi and Hindi language.

One of Khilvinder’s reasons to run for the BC Conservatives has to do with the hardships faced by low income seniors.  The BC Conservatives have an innovative approach to one of the hardships, hospital parking fees, which has been a pet peeve of mine in recent years.Patient doesn’t choose to go to the hospital for fun, they have to go due to some serious illness and it is not fair to make the pay for parking fee.

  • “An MLA must represent the concerns of their constituents and the general failure of elected politicians to deliver in this area is a big reason why the voting rate is so low,”
  • “On the Massey Tunnel or bridge debate, I am advocating for more public input on this decision.  The concerns raised by Richmond about this project have continually been ignored throughout the consultation and assessment process.
  • Putting such a large bridge in the middle of Richmond and Delta is going to destroy a lot of Blue Berry and Cranberry farmland. Plus local small farmer will also lose their firm land to expropriate by the government.
  • We need more Recreation Centre and homes for Indian language Senior, beside of local English speaking community centre.
  • “With good grassroots people like Khilvinder Hale coming forward to run for us our prospects are looking better and better and that are a good thing for the province too,” said Mitchell.
