Thank you for supporting our vision of Canada
Let me begin by thanking you for your support and electing me for the third time as your Member of Parliament for Scarborough-Rouge Park.
I am humbled to continue to serve you and will work tirelessly to support you on the issues you care about: ending the fight against the COVID 19 pandemic, climate change, human rights, a strong economy, $10 per day childcare, and a home for all.
Your vote on election day in support of these issues has empowered me to fight even harder for a fairer and more inclusive Canada.
This election brought forward different visions of Canada and I want to thank everyone who put their names forward, and in particular, Zia Choudhary, Kingsley Kwok and Asad Rehman.
I will continue to work across party lines to make Canada a better place for all. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, we will listen to all Canadians and strive to leave no one behind.
I cannot begin to thank the over 350 volunteers who worked tirelessly to get out our message of hope and hard work. Many were high school and university students, seniors, essential and front-line workers, and people from all walks of life.
They came to support our vision of Canada and help us run a positive campaign. I want to thank each and every one of them for their dedication and hard work during this campaign and the campaigns past.
This team went and helped in 17 different ridings across Ontario. I also want to thank our small group of very generous and repeat donors who allowed us to have the campaign we needed.
Our core group of David, Shauna, Ella, Gavin, Asma, Waleed, Piyush, and Anojini brought everything together under the leadership of Co-Campaign Managers Joshua and Dorine. Thank you also to our GOTV Chair for exemplary delivery on election day.
In the final analysis, we secured 63 percent of the vote in Scarborough-Rouge Park, an increase from the 2019 campaign, with a margin of 19,072 votes over the closest rival.
This election has been one of the most difficult ones in our history. I want to thank all those who voted, who volunteered, ran the election as staff, media, the caretakers, and everyone who had a part in making our democracy work.
I look forward to connecting with each and every one of you, and thank you for your continued support, feedback and encouragement.
Yours very truly,
