Canadian politics…

Some Canadian politics for once…

Toronto Life had a segment on Cheri DiNovo of our new democratic party.

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.

    Cher Di Novo is a fraud.

    She didn’t start driving a Mercedes until after her compnay The Abbott Group (a group of two) went out of business.

    You’ve been suckered

    Hey Nancy, just noticed your comment, sorry you feel that way! I’m a noobie in canadian politics myself, so definitely can’t claim to know much at all regarding it all…
