The governments we elect and the people who represent us matter in times of crisis.
In this pandemic, alongside you, I’ve worried about losing my job, keeping my family safe, and what comes next for our city and country. I’ve seen firsthand the pain of countless families, grieving the deaths of their loved ones alone in long-term care. Like you, I am inspired daily by the selflessness and sacrifice of health care workers, teachers, and all frontline workers.
I am running because electing celebrities and the wealthy in Toronto Centre has not helped our communities get further ahead, and doing so again will have the same result. We will not end the overlapping crises of a global pandemic, climate emergency, unaffordable housing, or systemic racism with shiny promises and empty action.
The NDP and Jagmeet Singh will put your needs first:
- Ensuring income stability during the pandemic and a just recovery, focusing on people not corporations.
- Tackling climate change by ending fossil fuel subsidies, implementing energy-saving building retrofits and more.
- Implementing public, universal pharmacare and dental care because your healthcare should not be tied to your job.
In Toronto Centre, I am running to build and sustain our communities for years to come, in times of crisis or not.
With love and courage,
