Tom Parkin for Parkdale-High Park

People are counting on us to win — and fight for them

Winning in Parkdale-High Park is personal to me. Sheena and I first lived together here. We’ve have raised our three daughters in this community’s schools, pools and parks. I’ve coached soccer here. And been involved in our residents’ association.

And we’ve helped in every election — because having an MP fighting for my community matters. This place has meaning to me – and I want Parkdale-High Park to have meaning on the national agenda of Canada again.
