Six years ago I was offered a wonderful new opportunity that brought me right into the heart of the public sphere — to serve the people of Toronto as Chief Planner. #Keesmaat4Mayor#topoli
I truly loved working with my Planning team and with the people in the diverse neighbourhoods of this great city. I learned that Torontonians love their city and have a tremendous amount to contribute to its future. #Keesmaat4Mayor#topoli
