It was less than a year ago we had a chance to choose our nominee for Toronto-Centre – and soon we will be asked to do so again.
A lot has happened since then; Justin Trudeau has solidified our party in the hearts and minds of Canadians, we won the Toronto Centre by election – by working together; and we just finished a terrific Biennial convention in Montreal.
A lot has been happening in our party.
Elections Canada too has been busy, and in the next election downtown Toronto will see the two ridings of Toronto Centre and Trinity-Spadina split into three.
A year ago I ran because I knew I could make a meaningful contribution to our community here at home and as a member of Justin Trudeau’s team in Ottawa. That hasn’t changed. And that’s why I’m once again putting my name forward.
When I came to Canada from Jamaica at the age of twenty-one I didn’t have much. Though I finished my banking career as a Senior Vice President at RBC, I can tell you life is always full of setbacks. I learned a lot from the last nomination race and I am excited to enter this race once again, with more experience, yes, but also with more passion than ever before.
Speaking and engaging with members of our riding association was an amazing experience. I look forward to seeing you all again and meeting those of you I haven’t had the pleasure of speaking with yet.
I hope I can count on your consideration.
All the best,
