- Maria has fought for people her whole life because she knows it’s hard to get ahead when governments keep giving breaks to rich corporations and forcing ordinary Canadians to pay the price. Maria has held many political leadership roles over the past 30 years, always with an eye for community building, working families and the under-privileged.
- As City Councillor, she took on successive federal governments and won her fight to defend Downsview Park and turn it into an affordable senior housing community. She has also fought to restore local sensitive habitat so that residents could access beautiful healthy environments.

She’s fighting to make life more affordable, build more housing, implement pharmacare, protect the environment, fight climate change, create new green jobs and improve community life, so that everyone can thrive.
- Her past roles have included City Councillor, Metro Councillor, School Trustee, Chair of North York Community Council, Chair of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), Chair of the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), Co-Chair of the Downsview Aerospace Working Group, and countless more.
