With the announcement that David Miller will step down as Toronto Mayor, we need a strong candidate of the left to challenge John Tory and/or George Smitherman in 2010.
Olivia would be great to build on the progress and achievements of Mayor Miller.
Olivia boasts a legacy of achievement after decades of public service in Toronto. She worked to create a more liveable and dynamic city through her leadership and dedication to improve economic opportunity, eradicate child poverty, enhance the environment and the waterfront, and strengthen social services, immigrant services, child care, affordable housing and affordable public transit. She also was an advocate for the kind of arts, culture and rich diversity that sets Toronto apart.
She knows the City, knows City Hall, and how to get results from the federal and provincial governments.
