2. Support Amber Morley
Progress Toronto is encouraging South Etobicoke residents to vote for Amber Morley. Amber is an experienced, local champion committed to working with residents to build strong neighbourhoods, affordable housing, accessible transit, community spaces, and good local jobs. Through our work to stop Ford’s cuts to city council, Progress Toronto built a strong list of progressive voters in South Etobicoke that we are getting out to vote for Amber.
