Randy BucaoRandy Bucao has resumed his campaign and will now run as a candidate for new Ward 21 – Scarborough Centre in the municipal elections on October 22.

Randy Bucao will focus on making Ward 21 a safe community. He will also commit to bringing affordable housing, accessibility to transit and city parks, and for more programs for children and seniors.

In late July, newly elected Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced that his governing Progressive Conservatives will enact legislation that slashes the size of Toronto city council from 47 wards to 25 wards. Mr. Bucao waited until Bill 5 – the Better Local Government Act, 2018 – went into effect on August 14 to make his decision, and with much encouragement from his supporters, decided to run again for the new ward of Scarborough Centre.

He acknowledged that a bigger ward will be a bigger challenge. He commented: “In this new Ward as Riding size; a Toronto City Councilor is exactly the same constituents like the MPP and MP. The only big difference is that a Councillor’s campaign is by itself or alone only and not with the Party.” But he is up to the challenge to bring a Filipino-Canadian into the governance of Canada’s largest city.
