Communication, development and health care: Richmond Hill residents share their expectations for next MPPs

Communication is key for Kate Jiang, a local business owner, and for Aizick Grimman, a father who runs his own business.

“I do hope the MPP can communicate with the residents and represent his or her constituency to bring their voices to Queen’s Park,” said Jiang, who has lived in the Richmond Hill riding for 10 years. 

Kate genuinely cares about the needs of the community. At the beginning of the pandemic in Jan. 2020, she, representing fellow parents, wrote the 1st letter to YRDSB raising concerns of the Covid-19 when most people thought it was flu. During the pandemic, she kept on sharing pandemic news and vaccine information in social groups on a daily basis. She also volunteered and helped hundreds of local high school students looking for volunteer opportunities during the difficult time.
