One Of The Most Badass Sikhs In The World Is Now Canada's Defence Minister
Canada, you're in safe hands.
This is Harjit Sajjan, 45, the brand new Liberal defence minister of Canada, sworn in just two days ago.
First things first, look at him. He looks like a total boss.
But there's way more than meets the eye. Punjab-born and Vancouver-raised, Harjit Sajjan has served in the Canadian military for over 23 years.
He's also an 11-year veteran of the Vancouver Police Department.
He was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal in 2012.
Aaaand he also bagged the mega-prestigious Order of Military Merit last year.
In fact, in 2006, the commander of Canada’s Coalition Task Force in Afghanistan couldn’t even bear his badassery and wrote an entire letter of appreciation for him.
And he was all, "Whoooa, this guy's courage."
Sajjan's got his crime- and terrorism-fighting priorities straight.
He's a hardcore believer in teamwork.
In a 2012 interview with the Vancouver Sun, he said he became a baptised Sikh as a teenager and it aided his drive as a soldier.
Here he is, just chillin' with his wife and kids.
And he's yet another reason for Canada to feel super proud and safe.
