A longtime Queen’s Park resident hopes to advocate for a greener, resident-focused and economically vibrant city as part of the New West Progressives’ team.

Lawyer Karima Budhwani is the latest candidate to join the New West Progressives’ council slate. Born in Kenya and raised in Calgary, she has a master’s degree in Environmental Studies from York University and she received her law degree from Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto.

“For over 20 years, Budhwani worked in the non-profit sector promoting and enhancing access to justice, including environmental justice in communities across B.C.” said a NWP press release. “She has been a passionate advocate supporting people in resolving their legal issues. As a life coach, she combines her solution-oriented approach and her passion for lifelong learning to help individuals design and live fulfilling and rewarding lives.”

Budhwani said she’s keen to draw on the diversity in the community to develop a long-term vision for a vibrant, inclusive, and sustainable New Westminster.
