Dear neighbours,
I arrived in Toronto as a Jewish-Iranian immigrant when I was 12 years old.
Since then, I have worked hard to give back to this city which has given me so much. I have volunteered at Baycrest Centre, Lawyers Feed the Hungry, my children’s schools, in Israel and in Zimbabwe. I have served on the Board of Directors of Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre (for people with mental health and addiction challenges) and RESULTS Canada (to end poverty worldwide.)
I am a lawyer, a professor, a writer, a non-profit leader, and a life-long volunteer.
My young family and I have lived in the ward for fourteen years. My daughters have gone to Allenby Junior Public School, Associated Hebrew Day School, and Glenview Senior Public School.
I love our Eglinton-Lawrence neighbourhood and the people living here. I feel fortunate to call so many of you my neighbours and friends. As your Councillor, I will be present and engaged.  I will listen to you and keep you informed.
I want to advocate for us, to serve the wonderful residents of our ward, and to make our great city of Toronto even better: more vibrant, more connected, more inclusive. I want to ensure that City Council makes smart, sensible decisions that improve the quality of life for all of us. I want to make sure that our decisions benefit us as well as our children.
I invite you to find out more about me and the campaign issues, to sign up for our newsletter, and to help me make Toronto a better city by volunteering on the campaign.
I would be honoured to represent you at city hall, and hope to have your support on October 22.

This touching story by @hunterhockey abt Robert, a former journalist, taking on of Alzheimer's is simultaneously inspirational, a reminder that we are all dust in the end, the importance of knowing that e/o has a story, and living our lives to the fullest

Ashkenazi Jews have seder plates...Iranian Jews have a seder table. What you don't see are the green onions we use to beat each other later...stay tuned

Email from Colette Kim, a Ward 8 resident to her friends & neighbours

Hello My Friends and Neighbours,
It is rare when I know with certainty who I should actually vote for in any election. Too often I see promises without action plans and without real heart. This election I haven’t an ounce of doubt about who I want representing us in Ward 8 (actually I’d like her to run for Mayor) and I want her to win so badly that I’m sending out this email asking you to put Dyanoosh on your radar. I’ve attached an article that she wrote 4 years ago so you can get an idea of how smart, passionate, understanding, and realistic Dyanoosh is. I also encourage you to bounce around her website and if you agree with me, please please forward this to all your friends in Ward 8.
In all sincerity,


See what residents and colleagues say about Dyanoosh.
