“Meet Clare Hacksel

“When I ran in the 2021 election, I heard clearly that change was not only desperately needed but urgently required to meet the demands of the future. Since the last election, I’ve stayed involved in our community by canvassing with our NDP volunteers on climate change issues and leading letter-writing campaigns against budget cuts to the TDSB. Two years after the last election, the same issues and the same urgency still exist. Across our riding, I hear people disappointed by the lack of progress on climate issues, fearful of the rising cost of living, and lack of affordable housing. I hear friends and neighbours outraged that Indigenous communities still don’t have clean water. Through my work, I see firsthand the healthcare system struggling to meet the needs of everyday folk.”
