Green Candidate

The federal Greens have announced their candidate for York South–Weston: Nicki Ward.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Ward is a “marketing expert in the financial services sector, a social justice advocate, [and] a professional writer”. She is also a performer, poet, and trans-rights activist.

In the past, she has run for councillor in the University–Rosedale riding and fought a tough battle to be the Liberal candidate in Toronto Centre (she lost both races against high-profile candidates).

Confusingly, her website says that she is seeking the nomination in “ottawa” [sic], and also in York South–Weston. Gary’s got it.
