A certain conservative writer for the Toronto Sun showed up at an election event during the 2018 provincial election. Sue Ann Levy had an axe to grind and her focus was candidate Jessica Bell. I was on site, working for the central party. Jessica handled herself with amazing poise, precision, and articulation while the media fracas descended on her. It was remarkable and I’ve valued her presence in our community whenever I encounter her.
We’ve both been active in the fight for environmental justice and sustainability. Jessica’s work at TTC Riders led her to build solidarity all across the City. Her endorsement reminds me the power of grassroots organizing.
