What VoteToronto Stands For:
About VoteTorontoVoteToronto is an on-going, independent, community-based volunteer organization that is committed to protecting and enhancing Toronto’s quality of life and long term sustainability, by making political processes transparent, encouraging high quality candidates to run for political office on a progressive, community-based platform, and holding politicians at all 3 levels continuously accountable for the long-term good health of Toronto and its residents.
VoteToronto has been organized by Torontonians who are fed up with backroom dealings at City Hall, which have led to the plan to expand the polluting and money-losing Island Airport, with the computer leasing and Union Station scandals, with cutbacks in community services and with too many Council decisions that favour corporate interests over community needs.
In its simplest form, VoteToronto is geared to create, support and publicize an independent and authoritative web site that will become a sought out source for election related information. VoteToronto's first major initiative was the 10 November 2003 city election.
Who We AreVoteToronto’s contributors are drawn from communities across Toronto, and have been active on other community-based projects such as battles around Union Station, the Front St. extension, improving social services, dealing more effectively with homelessness, amongst others.
VoteToronto's board members are Susan Swan, author and a leader in the arts community, Bill Freeman, a leader in the fight against the Island Airport, University of Toronto graduate student Jennifer Chan, and Paul Farrelly, market researcher in business and the arts.
