Former B.C. Premier Ujjal Dosanjh

Ujjal_DosanjhIn Depth host Ian Austin welcomes Ujjal Dosanjh, who made history as Canada’s first Indo-Canadian premier after nearly losing his life standing up to Sikh militants.

Dosanjh’s life story reads like an improbable hollywood movie – raised in a dusty village in India where he tended the family’s cattle on his unlikely path to becoming Canada’s federal health minister, British Columbia’s attorney general and Premier.

From Wikipedia:

Born in a village in the Jalandhar district of Punjab, India, Dosanjh emigrated to the United Kingdom at the age of 17 before moving to Canada almost four years later. He worked numerous manual labour jobs and attended university, studying political science. He earned his law degree at the University of British Columbia and opened his own law firm. He has been a vocal opponent of violence and extremism.
