A note from Magda Gondor-Berkovits
Dear friends and neighbours,
Like so many of us in York Centre, the opportunity to live in Canada is a dream come true. I was born in Hungary to parents who were both survivors of the Holocaust. As a small child, I was welcomed to Canada with my mother and brother as refugees of the Hungarian Revolution. The philosophy of giving back to Canada is very much on my mind.
I have deep roots in York Centre. I have lived in the riding since the 1960’s, and have raised a family here. My son has purchased his own home nearby and has continued to live in York Centre.
I also have deep roots in the Liberal party, and have held senior positions in the party, including president of the Ontario Women’s Liberal Commission, and have volunteered for the party at various levels since the 1970’s.
I have also been a loyal supporter and volunteer for Monte Kwinter, M.P.P. since he first got elected in 1985. Monte has been a mentor, and most importantly, a friend. Monte built bridges and reached out to people of all backgrounds, and that's why he was consistently able to earn the support of not just Liberals, but people who wouldn't ordinarily vote Liberal.
