Andrea Horwath on the resignation of Bas Balkissoon

“On behalf of Ontario’s New Democrats, I want to thank Bas Balkissoon for nearly thirty years of public service. He spent over a decade representing Scarborough as a Member of Provincial Parliament, and seventeen years as a Scarborough and Toronto City Councillor. As Deputy Speaker and Chair of several committees, Bas believed in the democratic process and worked hard in his various roles here in the legislature. We wish Bas Balkissoon all the best.”
