A wonderful yet brief discussion on our doorstep. A new voice to enliven the debate at City Hall. I am excited to see what Dyanoosh will bring.
Thank you, Robert, for your openness and your engagement. I look forward to serving our community and to contributing to a better vision for Toronto.
great to meet you today. You have my vote.
Thanks for giving so much to the community, Unah! And I am honoured by your support.
Lovely talking with you today Dyanoosh. You have so much to offer.
Great to meet you, Steph! Hope to see you on a big stage one day.
Was great meeting Dyanoosh today. An informative discussion. Would like to see what she could do on City Council!

I would like to understand your views on the LGBT community?
Nancy – Ward 16
Inclusiveness includes people of various sexual orientations. I couldn’t talk about inclusive communities if I excluded LGBTQ community from the concept.
Let me know if that answers your question. Alternatively, check my Huffington Post article from last year: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/dyanoosh-youssefi/a-law-school-that-bans-ho_b_4467369.html
Thank you for your prompt and thoughtful response and for sharing your great article from last year. You seem to have a lot to offer our ward and the city – based on what I’ve seen on your site, video and your bio. There was just one piece missing for me and you answered it well. I hope to see you as our City Councillor.
Hello Dyanoosh, sorry to be commenting so late, but it was really great to meet you at our front door. I think you are smart and have great perspective. Crossing my fingers that you will make it to City Hall! Good luck! Teresa Roncon
Teresa! It was great to meet you, too & then to see you on Yonge St. Thank you for your kind words and good wishes!
I am a resident in ward 16. My voting list is narrowed down to three candidates based on their positions on this issue: Are you in favour of Scarborough subway or LRT? Thank you and good luck.
Thank you for your email.
My position, after much contemplation, is that we need to go back to have an LRT in Scarborough. I say much contemplation, not because I think the area should have had subways in the first place (it should have been an LRT), but because I am cognizant that a) going back and forth on decisions is tiresome and not always a good way to move forward and b) there is a perception that Toronto folks want preferential treatment on many services.
However, given the density of the area (it is not slated for development) and the cost of a subway, and also given the fact that current work, from what I understand, would work with either LRT or subway, then I would vote to have a 7-stop LRT line there. I would also note that as far as my research has shown, there would be no contract cancellations, so there are no additional costs there.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
How fortunate for me that I stumbled upon you on Avenue Rd today, before seeing your email reponse. I thought that your answers to all of my questions were knowledgeable, thoughtful and thorough. With your clear understanding of community needs and issues, I think you would be a perfect fit for councillor of Ward 16. You definitely have my vote and support. I shall be watching the results and and hoping you prevail on Monday.
So sorry to see you will not be our Ward 16 Councillor. You would have brought much needed insight and forward thinking and I hope you continue to be involved and run again. In the meantime, if any of your future community work requires some planning advice, please contact me
Thank you so much for your kind words. Would love to stay connected with you.
