What people are saying about Norm

“Norm is a tireless advocate who works hard to improve our community. As an MP, I know he will fight for a green and just recovery, and for affordable and supportive housing so that we can bring an end to the homelessness crisis in our city. I encourage you to support Norm in this election – he is already fighting for us and this position will allow him to do even more in service of our community.” – Chris Glover, MPP for Spadina–Fort York
"Working with Norm over the past few years has been an absolute pleasure. We share the same values of social inclusion, equity, and active engagement when it comes to public education. Norm cares deeply about serving his community, and I know he will keep fighting for children and youth as a Member of Parliament." – Stephanie Donaldson, TDSB Trustee for Ward 9 (Spadina–Fort York and Davenport)
"From his work on the NoJetsTO campaign and fighting for our local waterfront, to his commitment to supporting students and championing public education, Norm has been a dedicated leader for our Spadina–Fort York community. I know he will bring the same passion and commitment to representing us in Ottawa. He has my full support." – Joe Cressy
"When it comes to our kids and our schools, Norm is committed to making sure every child has what they need to grow and thrive. He's been a consistent champion for the Spadina-Fort York community, and I believe he'll make an excellent MP in Ottawa." – Mike Layton
“As the Education Critic at Queen's Park, I know what it means to stand up and fight for our kids. Norm has worked tirelessly for our schools to be safe and for our children to have access to education that is supportive, equitable, and enriching. I know that he will bring the same dedication to representing Spadina-Fort York as your next MP."– MPP Marit Stiles (Davenport) and Education Critic for the Official Opposition
"Norm, has worked closely with our Spadina-Fort York Community Care organization on addressing the devastating effects of Food Insecurity, Senior’s Hunger & Care and Housing & Homelessness. Norm has helped us feed and care for many of our most vulnerable community members throughout the pandemic. He understands that the need to act on these issues is more critical now than ever before. That is why I fully support Norm Di Pasquale in this election."– Shauna Harris, Co-founder & Director, Spadina-Fort York Community Care
"Norm understands how to support a community. He's been a successful community organizer working to stop jets at the island airport. During these recent hard pandemic years he fought hard as a school trustee for safety and equity. I know Norm understands the need for social housing that includes co-operatives, rent-geared-to-income housing and will be a strong voice for us in Ottawa."– Cathy Crowe, housing advocate and author
"Norm Di Pasquale is the type of person we always hope will run for federal office — a person who has always been fighting to make our community and city a better place to live. Norm has been at the forefront of city and waterfront activism, whether it was to ensure that the future of Ontario Place is for all the people of Ontario, or in a successful campaign that protected our waterfront from the noise, safety risks and pollution of jets. I’m looking forward to Norm Di Pasquale as our MP because I know we will be well served."– Lester Brown, Past President of the Gooderham and Worts Residents' Association
