Some Canadian politics for once…
I love her story.
She was a street kid dealing drugs by smuggling LSD in hollowed out Bibles. She ended up becoming a mother of two and a Mercedes-driving CEO. Her husband was killed in a motorcycle accident and she became an ordained minister of the united church. She’s a big advocate of poverty related issues and just introduced a bill to raise minimum wage to $11 by 2011.
The Toronto Life article closes out by stating “Her politics grow from listening to her inner child – the 15-year-old street kid hoping for a decent chance to turn her life around.”
You can find her blog here.
