Unique among Toronto mayoralty candidates with a platform, Saron Gebresellassi has proven credentials supporting ordinary workers, including workers of colour. A vote for her sends a signal of support for Toronto’s diverse working class. An outspoken supporter of the $15 and Fairness Campaign, Gebresellassi is a successful labour and human rights lawyer. She is the go-to solicitor for Black Lives Matter Toronto and has won cases for Gilary Massa (fired while on maternity leave from Ryerson University) and workers of colour in the Ontario public service. The latter case resulted in a moratorium on suspensions for such workers given the proven discrimination in their cases.
