Brandon at Sirius has done up a little introduction to Sikhism. I was glad to read it and learn a bit about my neighbors. Here in Abbotsford, Sikhs are the second largest part of the population after the Christians (according to the Wikkipedia). The division is about 61% to 13%. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but plenty of the farms here are run by Sikhs and there is a large temple in the downtown as well. The Wikkipedia also says it is the oldest Sikh temple in North America.
