Susan pauses in the middle of weekend canvassing to share an important message with voters.
Today I proudly voted Susan Gapka for Toronto DSB Trustee in Ward 11/13 #TorCen & #UniRose. A tireless advocate for trans and gender non-conforming identities, it’s time for Susan to take her seat at the table #TOvotes18 #TOpoli
Yesterday, I revised my nomination for the new TSDB Wards 13 Toronto Centre and Ward 11 University Rosedale the new boundaries according to Bill 5.
Boundaries have been significantly expanded, workload increased, salary remains fixed, fundraising maximums increased.
It’s overwhelming with a truncated election period and not what I expected when I first registered. Bill 5 will favour incumbents, and disadvantage independent and marginalized candidates. Especially as a court might overturn Bill 5, which they should, which would further compromise campaigns with fewer resources. Rules are in place for a reason, to provide a more equitable playing field, and this change in the rules mid-election both undermines and compromises democracy, campaigns, and staff’s ability to deliver a fair and equitable result.
