An incident that is very shameful for the Punjabi community has come to light where Brampton wards 9 and 10 Councillor Mr Gurpreet Dhillon has been accused of sexual misconduct.
The complaint of sexual misconduct has been filed by a Brampton business owner who was a part of the recent trade delegation to Turkey where Mr Dhillon was also present.
The name of the victim is being withheld, while her attorney Michael A. Moon of Moon Rozier LPC told a media platform that the incident occurred in her room at a hotel in Turkey on November 14. The two were a part of the Canada-Turkey Business Council trade delegation.
Mr Dhillon has denied all allegations in an emailed statement issued on December 17 and said “at no time” did he “participate in any inappropriate conduct” while on the trade mission.
The City confirmed the allegations levelled against Mr Dhillon and said the officials forwarded them to both Peel police and the city’s integrity commissioner for investigation.
