I am greatly looking forward to going canvassing with Min Sook Lee this summer, as we work hard to bring the federal riding of Toronto-Danforth back to the NDP fold. But first, we have to choose Min Sook Lee as our candidate.
I met Min Sook some time ago as a consequence of her career as a documentary film maker. I know she has deep roots in the Toronto-Danforth community and is an activist on issues that matter. I know she’s canvassed and worked in NDP campaigns, particularly for Olivia Chow.
This nomination race has given me a chance to learn more about her. I’m impressed. It’s clear Min Sook can put in the hours, days and months of effort needed to win.
Min Sook has the energy, drive, commitment and smarts that are crucial to a winning campaign. Those qualities say that Min Sook will be a worthy successor to Craig Scott and Jack Layton.
That’s why I’m choosing Min Sook.
So, please join me at the Toronto-Danforth nomination meeting on May 30 and choose Min Sook Lee to reclaim Toronto-Danforth in the federal election.
I’ll see you there, and then on the campaign trail.
P.S. The Toronto-Danforth NDP nomination meeting is Thursday, May 30th from 6:00-9:00 PM at the Metropolitan Community Church Toronto (115 Simpson Ave).
