Today is the first day of Rosh Hashanah. It’s also the first Toronto Centre candidates’ debate. This unfortunate scheduling means that our candidate Ellen Michelson will be unable to participate. Instead, I will represent her and the Green party at tonight’s debate. It’s at St. Simonâ€™s Church (525 Bloor St. E, just east of Sherbourne) and begins at 7:30pm.
Shana Tova, my friends.
I’ll be on “Focal Point with John Taylor” tonight live between 8pm and 9pm on Rogers Newmarket. I’m a member of a panel. We’ll be discussing panely things.

I’m thrilled to announce that we’re about to make history by opening Toronto Centre’s first ever Green Party campaign office. I hope you can join us:

Facebook event is here.
A bunch of us (Jordy, Jess, Jeff, Jason, and Shaun…jeez, what is it with this campaign and people whose names start with J?) were in there last night getting it ready. The previous tenant left it in poor shape, so we’ve painted, put in a new floor, and added some insulation for heat loss.
It would be great to see all of you in person, again or for the first time! (Dot, even you’re invited, though I recognize that the trip from Calgary may be too much.)
My volunteer coordinator Jason, along with my events coordinator Robyn, would like me to let you know about a few things that are going on this week. (Eventually they will have the ability to post here themselves, but that’s still getting setup.)
Tonight, there is a volunteer information meeting at 519 Church Street at 7pm. If you’re interested in helping out on the campaign, this is a great way to get looped in.
This Friday, David Suzuki is speaking at the University of Toronto. We’re hosting an after-party on the top floor of O’Grady’s pub, on College at the base of King’s College Road. If you’re going to see Suzuki speak (as I am), then head over as soon as the event’s done. Otherwise, swing by around 8:30 or 9pm. I’m very excited that deputy leader Adriane Carr will be there with us, so it will be a great event.
For details on these events and others, don’t forget to keep checking the events page. Lots of new events are getting added all the time.
