“In 100 words or less. If you are elected, how would your office make an impact that will be felt locally, in Toronto Centre?”




Brian – Toronto Centre is my home. Like you, I work, play, bike, eat, and shop here every day. I believe in a community that’s safe and healthy, so I’ve helped to coordinate vaccine clinics. I want to live in a community that takes care of each other, which is why I volunteer with a local food bank. I want to live in a community that’s clean and beautiful, so I lend a hand cleaning graffiti. It’s the people that make this community great, and you deserve a MP who will roll up their sleeves and work alongside you.



Annamie – Since the start of the pandemic, hundreds of homeless people The people of Toronto Centre deserve real representation, and I will work tirelessly to ensure that everyone has what they need to live a life with dignity. From tackling the overdose crisis by decriminalizing drugs and creating a national safe supply, to implementing a Guaranteed Livable Income and investing in affordable and supportive housing, I will implement progressive policies that will have a tangible impact on people’s lives, both in the short and long term. Every person in Toronto Centre deserves a green future, a life with dignity, and to live in a truly just society – and I believe we can make that happen. 



Ryan – This election is about how we get Toronto Centre and Canada back on its feet, rebuild our economy and our jobs, and make real progress. Using Canada’s Recovery Plan, Ryan Lester and Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole, will focus relentlessly on jobs, wages, and getting Canada’s economy and finances back on track. Canada’s Conservatives will boost provincial funding for mental health care and create 1,000 residential drug treatment beds. A vote for any other party is simply a vote for Justin Trudeau.

Marci – If re-elected—our team will continue what we started some ten months ago:  Listen to the needs of our communities in Toronto Centre and act on them. Whether it’s delivering new investments in affordable housing, supportive programs in Black and marginalized communities, being bolder on protecting our environment, pushing harder on a path of reconciliation or helping families navigate the COVID 19 pandemic—we will be there. In our office—serving our community well is the only goal.
