Sukhi Dhami, a 27-year-old farmer will challenge current Liberal MLA Mike de Jong in the riding of Abbotsford West.

Dhami, was born in Chilliwack but has lived in Abbotsford for the past 15 years.

He said winning in the riding will take work.

“We are doing well in the polls, but I don't believe in polls too much. You have to get in the community, do your due diligence and you've got to work with the people.”
