A cheeky proposal

Harper’s Universal Childcare Benefit increase has just come into effect.  I have heard from several people who are livid that their taxpayer’s dollars are being used to buy their vote.

And the worst thing is, it’s working.

The latest poll has put the Conservatives ahead going into the election.

So, what do you do with the extra $720 a year you’ll be getting?

I have a cheeky proposal.

Imagine the look on Harper’s face if he knew you were giving this money – the money he was hoping would buy your vote – to our local pipeline-hating, democratic-reforming, environmental-protecting Toronto-Danforth Green Party.

Think of his reaction!

Donate now.

While this proposal is cheeky, it’s also serious and urgent.     Read more »

Thank you — looking forward to 2015

As many of you may know I’ve been very active in Toronto-Danforth’s Green Party. After a month-long campaign amongst our members, I am pleased to have been chosen by our membership last night to lead our party into the next federal election as the candidate for Toronto-Danforth.

Toronto-Danforth is a large riding that includes Leslieville, Little India, Broadview’s Chinatown, Greektown and Riverdale. It’s very Green with a large membership, strong voter support, and often sets the agenda in local politics.

I’m looking forward to the election in 2015 and a chance to run for Parliament. It’s an opportunity for us to stand up for democratic reform, social justice and environmental sustainability.

I’m grateful for Laura’s support as I juggle pre-election preparation with the the many exciting projects we are working on at EXPECT.

I’m a also very grateful for Dharini’s support, who really is the greatest wife anyone could ask for.

Stay tuned…
