Thank you

Chiara addressing the room at the campaign launch fundraiser

When I announced my plans to run for city council in York South-Weston, against a 34-year incumbent, many people said it couldn’t be done.

I never believed them. We never believed them.

And look at what we’ve accomplished together. We ran THE BEST campaign in the city, knocking on tens of thousands of doors, having conversations with neighbour after neighbour, and doing it with energy and enthusiasm that focused on a positive vision of what we could create together.

And we came close. Oh, so close.

Challenger campaigns are not "supposed" to come within spitting distance of long-time incumbents, yet we came within 94 votes. 94 votes, out of 21,167 ... or less than half a percent.

I'm so proud of the campaign we ran. We went up against power -- and deeply entrenched power, at that -- and we put them on notice.

The result is obviously disappointing. But it's not over.

For now, I want to express my deep appreciation for everyone who helped build this movement.

Our work to improve our neighbourhoods and build a city we can be proud of does not end here; and I look forward to continuing this journey with all of you.
