Candidate, Ward 45 (formerly 42) Scarborough - Rouge River at City of Toronto

Connect with Amanda Cain Send Message »


I am a independent candidate in the upcoming 2018 Municipal Election. 

Issues of focus are: 

  • Economic Development, 
  • Youth, 
  • Transportation Planning, 
  • Environment and 
  • Reconciliation with our Indigenous First Nations.

As a former homeless teen mother, I know first hand how poverty affects the trajectory of success and how to assist those most in need. Because of my life experience, I tend to be a centrist candidate who makes rational, logical and sustainable choices, one who demands action but coupled with a vision for a more prosperous Scarborough.
