Volunteering in the Toronto Municipal Election
Bond Students Gain Awareness of the Municipal Election Process
On the morning of September 13th, 2014, students from Bond came to Ward 37, Scarborough Centre, to participate in the City of Toronto’s municipal election process. Fifteen students, from Bond, worked very hard for four hours, assisting in the distribution of flyers to the residents in the community.
Through this volunteer effort, Bond students learned first hand how the municipal election process works. Their performance was highly praised by Ward 37 Councillor Michael Thompson. “They have been terrific!” he told the Bond Newspaper reporter.
Councillor Thompson is very active on behalf of Toronto's youth and is proud of the work Bond students are doing in the community. He believes Bond’s support is very valuable to the community and the students are developing strong leadership skills through their volunteer efforts.
Councillor Thompson encourages students to become involved in more community activities, so they can gain first-hand knowledge about municipal government and politics. He is confident that these students will become the leaders of the future, whether in the City of Toronto or in their home country.
Councillor Thompson very much appreciates the contribution of Chinese residents in Ward 37, Scarborough Centre, and throughout Toronto and Canada and particularly the positive role Bond plays in the community.
