Therese Lulf
Downtown Eastside Resident

I am writing from a low-income and often troubled neighbourhood in Vancouver, where Paul has been actively moving amongst us and making us feel good about who we are and where we are.

Paul has the uncanny gift of energizing a mission with dignity and fun and humour, and all accompanied by that irresistible smile. Nothing looks like uphill work, nor does it look undoable. Fundraising, feeding us—and what a cook he is!—going to bat for us when we are tired or out of steam, was all done by Paul in a gracious, welcoming way. He cannot do less than give it his all.

When Paul left for Toronto, we were thrown in to a state of sadness. He is missed in a very profound way, and lives amongst us still. We are richer for Paul having been here, and are using his wisdom to our benefit in all our efforts here. We are following Paul in his exciting journey, and cheering him on to success!

Crystal Sinclair
Indigenous Rights Activist, Founder of Idle No More Toronto

As an activist and community leader, my work has mostly been devoted to advancing Indigenous rights and advocating for environmental sustainability. Through his time at FoodShare, Paul Taylor Has demonstrated that he is an active listener with a deep commitment to social justice that is present both in his words and actions. He has put Indigenous sovererignty and food justice at the centre of the conversations around how and where we access food, think about land and protect our water. He is committed to building healthier communities, to creating a more equal society, and to transitioning to a greener future. I am so proud to support him in his nomination.
