BRANTFORD — Community leader and seniors’ advocate Ruby Toor won the nomination for Brantford—Brant at a riding association meeting today. Toor, the executive director of a local retirement home and a leader in the community, will run to succeed current Speaker and long-time local MPP Dave Levac.
"I am honoured to be selected as the Ontario Liberal candidate," said Toor, who immigrated to Canada from India in the late 1970s. She has resided in Brantford for over twenty-five years.
"I am passionate about working to support our seniors as they age in our community," Toor said. "I want to work to ensure our seniors are cared for and supported, even as we work to ensure high-quality education for our children, with good local schools and free tuition."
Toor has a Bachelor of Science, a degree in gerontology and is a Doctor of Homeopathic Medicine degree. She serves on many charitable organizations in the community, including the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Alzheimer Society and the Cancer Society.
