Raymond Bhushan chosen to be the NDP candidate for Richmond Hill

RICHMOND HILL — New Democrats in Richmond Hill have chosen Raymond Bhushan to be their NDP candidate in the 2022 election.

“I am excited to fight for families in Richmond Hill. The cost of everything is going up, and people are hurting after years of Liberal and Conservative cuts and funding freezes to things that matter, like education and health care. Andrea Horwath and the NDP have what it takes to defeat Doug Ford and fix what is broken. The NDP will fix the housing crisis, invest in health care and education and deliver universal dental care, mental health care and pharmacare,” said Bhushan.

“The pandemic exposed deep cracks in services people rely on, like health care and seniors' care, as well as a lack of protections for workers. Andrea Horwath and the NDP will overhaul home care so seniors can live at home longer and make long-term care public and not-for-profit, to ensure every dollar goes directly to residents. I am proud to be joining Andrea Horwath’s team."


  • Raymond Bhushan is an Engineering student at the University of Toronto.
  • He went to high school in Richmond Hill and has a deep appreciation for the rich culture and diversity of the city.
  • He has seen first-hand how housing affordability, cuts to education, and mismanagement of the pandemic have impacted people across Ontario.
