The reality of campaigning has set in as I settle into a rhythm of canvassing - ie. knocking on doors and introducing myself to strangers. I love meeting people and cherish this opportunity to see the wonderful diversity of people that make up our neighbourhood. The tough part for me is keeping it brief. I want real connection and that takes more time than delivering a simple script of persuasion.
This past week we officially launched our campaign as I filed my nomination for city council in the new Ward 29 in Toronto. It’s been a fast paced and surprising lead up. Fast paced because we had only 6 weeks to prepare for filing my nomination. Surprising because I only decided to run during the two weeks following the Toronto Vigil.
