Climate Leader and Former Mayor of Toronto
"Bhutila has been a champion for us in Parkdale—High Park. She’s been steadfast and outspoken on the issues that matter most to all of us. From local infrastructure grants here in our neighbourhoods, to being Ontario’s progressive voice on affordable child care, Bhutila has delivered. She has my enthusiastic support for re-election!"
Toronto District School Board Trustee, Parkdale—High Park (Ward 7)
"Students and families in our neighbourhoods are well-served by Bhutila’s local leadership and her experience. She listens, cares, and amplifies our concerns at Queen’s Park. Only Bhutila and the NDP have an achievable plan to fix our schools by lowering class sizes and immediately address the school repair backlog.

Toronto City Councillor, Parkdale—High Park (Ward 4)

Community Organizer & Labour Activist, Swansea
"Bhutila understands that precarious work is a public health hazard. She is a relentless fighter for decent work both at Queen’s Park and on the streets. I am proud to have her as our MPP."
Small business owner & Roncesvalles resident
"When my business was struggling at the height of lockdowns, I reached out to Bhutila for help. She advocated for me and helped secure pandemic funding that the Ford government left me waiting months for. I know that she personally saved countless local small businesses by standing up to the Ford government’s bad policies."
Community Leader, Parkdale—High Park
Over the past few years, Parkdale—High Park has had the opportunity to observe and evaluate MPP Bhutila Karpoche's work and support of this community. It has become clear that Bhutila is a hard-working change agent who is aware of the issues that are at stake for the people, local businesses, support systems and is working towards making a difference.
Change takes time to implement, and with strong-willed individuals like Bhutila, we're able to see things to be one step closer to where they need to be. Bhutila's commitment to this neighbourhood and its people sets her apart from other candidates and she has my full support.
Past President, Tibetan Women’s Association of Ontario
"Bhutila is an inspiring leader for all of us. She listens. She cares. And she makes sure our voices are heard at Queen’s Park.
She’s a strong woman leader and a role model for so many, and we still need more gender equity and more diverse representation in politics.
We need Bhutila back in the Legislature and I’m proud to be supporting her."
"With Bhutila as our MPP, we have an experienced fighter who goes to bat for us each and every day. She really listens to community members’ concerns and collaborates with us meaningfully to get things done."
Co-Chair, Safe Parkside
"Bhutila truly went above and beyond in her support and assistance when our community was pushing for stronger road safety on Parkside Drive. Not only were her efforts integral to helping us bring about much-needed safety changes, but she also tabled legislation to help make all of Ontario's roads safer for everyone. Bhutila is a great leader and an even better person. We are lucky to have her representing us."
Janet Joy Wilson
Safe Streets Advocate, Warren Park
"Bhutila makes sure our voices are heard at Queen’s Park, and is always there fighting for us. After a series of devastating incidents, she worked with experts and members of the community to respond. She also tabled the Vulnerable Road Users Act, which would make sure our streets are safer for everyone—especially cyclists and pedestrians. We need her back in the Legislature so our voices are heard!"
Community Organizer and Toronto District School Board Trustee Candidate, Parkdale—High Park (Ward 7)
"Bhutila places equity at the centre of all of her work—from one-on-one constituency services, to tabling legislation to fight inequity. When BSSC rallied to make sure Black students felt safer at schools, Bhutila was there. When our communities marched against anti-Black and anti-Indigenous racism, Bhutila was there. She’s the fighter we need here in Parkdale—High Park."
Social Worker, Roncesvalles Village
"I’m voting to re-elect Bhutila because she has delivered so much for our community. From her support of the Sorauren Farmers Market to the Project Hope Garden at St. Joseph’s Health Centre, we need her representing us at Queen’s Park."
Community Organizer & Housing Activist
"Bhutila fights to make sure everyone has a safe, comfortable, and affordable place to call home. She’s pushing for real rent control between tenants and worked hard to crack down on fraud in Ontario’s housing market. She’s won my support for re-election."
Bloor West Village
"We’re better with Bhutila because she makes a point of touching base with people in every corner of every neighbourhood in Parkdale—High Park. She listens because she’s focused on what matters to people, and a fighter to fix what’s broken. She’s an excellent MPP and in this riding, the only way to defeat Doug Ford."
Community Activist (High Park resident)
"While canvassing across the riding of Parkdale—High Park for Bhutila over the past months, I have heard so many people at the door say how much they respect her because they recognize Bhutila's hard work and sincerity. She gives her whole self to being an outstanding MPP. We are so lucky to have Bhutila and her dedicated staff!"
"Bhutila stands up for tenants. She and her team have worked to stop unfair evictions and keep tenants safe during the pandemic. And only Bhutila and the NDP support real rent control and have a bold but achievable plan for more than 250,000 units of affordable housing in the next ten years. We can’t rely on the other parties to fix what they broke. Bhutila and the NDP will get it done."
Registered Early Childhood Educator, Dundas & Bloor
"I’m with Bhutila because as the Official Opposition Critic for Child Care, she held the Ford Conservatives’ feet to the fire when it came to affordable child care for all. She and the NDP will work to implement the $10-a-day child care deal faster, create more accessible and high-quality spaces, and ensure workers are treated fairly. Let’s re-elect her for better child care for our communities!"
Refugee Rights Advocate
"Bhutila is a true champion for the people of Parkdale—High Park. As a community advocate for refugee rights, I know that Bhutila listens deeply to constituents and acts in our interests. As our MPP, she has worked hard to amplify the voices of people who are often not heard in our community. She and the NDP will continue fighting for affordable housing, mental health supports, and labour rights. That’s why I’m proud to be voting to re-elect Bhutila Karpoche."
Co-Owner, Master Mechanic High Park
"Bhutila has the energy and experience we need at Queen’s Park. I’m a small business owner, and she has been such a supportive Member of Provincial Parliament. She and the NDP have a solid plan to make sure small businesses like mine have an advocate. Her advocacy in the community is genuine and I look up to her as a role model and is an inspiration to all women."
Parkdale Resident & Community Organizer
"The cost and availability of housing is pushing people out of our neighbourhoods. I’ve seen Bhutila stand arm-in-arm to stop unfair evictions. Bhutila and the NDP have a plan to actually tackle the housing crisis and make sure everyone has a safe, affordable place to live. In Parkdale—High Park, vote for Bhutila!"
Financial Professional (and Roncesvalles Village resident)
"Bhutila is a leader who truly cares for people. She’s principled, courageous, and never afraid to do the right thing and she works hard for all of us. She is who we need representing us in Parkdale—High Park!"
Baby Point resident
"Small businesses drive our economy, but time and time again the Liberals and the Conservatives have chosen to support big box stores and their corporate friends over local entrepreneurs. As a small business owner, I know Bhutila has my back. She and the NDP have a plan to deliver the support we need to recover. I’m proud to cast my ballot to re-elect Bhutila Karpoche!"
Local Small Business Owner
"My nail salon faced closure without a Small Business Support grant during the COVID-19 pandemic. There was no way for me to contact the government agency to get an explanation on why my application was denied and there were no replies to my emails. I contacted Bhutila Karpoche’s office for assistance and they dealt with the issue on my behalf. Finally my application was approved and I received the grant. I was blissfully happy. Thank you to Bhutila and her team for their help over the last few months from the bottom of my heart."
"Since her election as an MPP in 2018, Bhutila has been a strong champion for climate action. She has brought forward numerous petitions on the environmental issues and introduced three climate-focused private member's bills."
