bombay palace: Singh, who was born in east Toronto to Punjabi parents, said while growing up in Newfoundland and Labrador and Windsor, Ont., he was picked on because his name, skin and hair were different, according to CTV. I faced a lot bullying at school and often felt like I didn't belong, Singh told hundreds of supporters at Bombay Palace in Brampton, Ont. -- the same place he celebrated his 2011 provincial win. If Singh is successful, he would be the first non-Caucasian to helm a major federal party. Singh said he wasn't alone, but it struck him as incredibly unfair that other kids who were no less capable couldn't follow their dreams because their families had less money. The values that guide me today, and will continue to guide me as leader, are the progressive, social democratic values rooted in my experiences growing up, he said, switching often between English and French in his speech. Singh's father studied medicine in Newfoundland and Labrador then moved the family to Windsor. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
