A letter from Paul

Dear Friends,

On June 23, you have the opportunity to nominate an NDP candidate who truly reflects the incredible energy of Parkdale–High Park.

This is a diverse riding. It is a dynamic riding. It is a scrappy riding. An innovative riding. And a riding where people look out for each other.

A letter from Naomi Klein

I rarely get involved in electoral politics, especially nomination races. And I’m writing you now in a personal capacity, not representing any organization. But I believe it’s critical to get some people inside the political bubble who have strong ties to outside social movements, can hear the alarm bells ringing, and forthrightly reject incrementalism in favour of transformative politics.

I believe Paul Taylor has those qualities, and more.‍

Over my decades of involvement with the NDP, I’ve seen the party develop in exciting new directions. And as NDP members, we’ve achieved many victories in pursuit of a more just, equitable, and inclusive Canada.

I’m now calling upon you to help build our movement by voting for Paul Taylor as your Federal NDP candidate in Parkdale–High Park at the nomination meeting on June 23.

Support for Paul

The greatest challenges we face in this country aren’t climate change, growing inequality and the lack of decent jobs, they are cynicism, apathy, and the lack of hope. Paul Taylor gives me hope. He understands we need a Canada at the forefront of environmentalism and international human rights. He also understands that this is a critical election and a true progressive needs to win it. That’s why I support Paul Taylor.

Cheri DiNovo
Former MPP for Parkdale–High Park

Paul Taylor and the NDP have a different kind of vision. It’s a vision of a country that puts the priorities of individuals over corporations, centres the voices of marginalized communities, and understands that electoral politics is a critical tool for meaningful community engagement and national change.

Paul Taylor is the person that Parkdale–High Park needs to champion this vision in Parliament.

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 sovereignty 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.
