Endorsements

I’ve had the pleasure to work with Justin in a variety of capacities, and I’ve seen him in action leading community activism projects, chairing meetings bringing together leaders of very different organizations on a common cause, and speaking effectively at rallies and protests.  I was also greatful for the work he did on my campaign for city councillor in the municipal elections of October 2010, as my Media Officer and in helping me to reach as many citizens as possible on the campaign trail.  Justin is highly regarded in our community for taking on challenging problems and choosing what’s right over what’s easy.

For as long as I have known Justin Trottier, he has consistently exhibited a deep appreciation for both freedom and fairness. His talent for managing complex networks of individuals and groups on a day-to-day basis while steadfastly advocating for evidence-based laws and policies is rivaled only by his unparalleled motivation. Justin Trottier is a true defender of Canadian values and I would not hesitate for a second to endorse him for the office of MPP in the riding of Parkdale-High Park. – Mike Evans

I have known Justin Trottier for a few years, and in my opinion, he would be a very effective MPP candidate for the Green Party, of Ontario, in the riding of Parkdale-High Park, in that he is very knowledgeable and very articulate.  Justin is able to debate with the best of them and always keeps his cool and never presents himself as arrogant or angry, only informed and calm.  I think that Justin, in any project, would bring intelligence and energy.  I highly recommend him as an MPP candidate for the Green Party. – Dorothy Hays, B.A., B.

I have worked alongside Justin on several activist initiatives and he has always impressed me as a tireless advocate of human rights. In fact, he will fight for the rights of others, even if they are philosophically different than his own. His passion and energy are infectious. This is the kind of new politician we need in our Province.

Having known and worked alongside Justin Trottier for a number of years, I can, with complete veracity, testify to the diligent, intelligent and meticulous manner in which he pursues any endeavor he touches. Yet more significant is his passionate and unwavering commitment to our shared Canadian principles of democracy and the equality of every citizen. It is this rare synergy of principle and tenacity that makes Justin a worthy candidate for your vote in the upcoming election. Any constituency in our noble province would undoubtedly be served well by him. – Schreiber Pereira

**********************************************************
Justin has always been a steadfast supporter of church-state separation and government neutrality in matters of religious belief.  It is extremely refreshing to see a candidate who is willing to stand up for what is right in a political climate where positions are far too often cautiously crafted to opinion polls and the use of vague and empty feel-good rhetoric is commonplace. – Greg Oliver
