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 for 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 a 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.
2/ (cont'd) 3) Yet somehow now she can't walk and chew gum, by having a contingency of 47-ward system ready if a court quickly finds 25-ward election to be unconstitutional. She acted ahead of the law for 25 but can't now for 47? Very odd, indeed off. #Toronto #TOcouncil #Bill5
Perks points out, that without challenge, the province could decide with the passing of new legislation that Toronto city council no longer exists and appoint an administrator to run municipal affairs.
