Connecting The Community with
Policy Makers

Building Roots hosted an event in anticipation of the Toronto Centre By-Election that occurred on Oct. 26th, 2020. Our goal was to provide the Moss Park community an opportunity to directly ask their candidates questions about their platforms prior to voting.
Community members joined an online seminar with candidates where the questions submitted prior to the event from the community were asked directly to the candidates of their riding.
