New Democratic Leader Andrea Horwath says her motion calling for a possible future Scarborough subway stop to be named in honour of Nelson Mandela is a fitting way to honour the legacy of the late South African leader.
“Mr. Mandela – known lovingly as Madiba – was a great leader, and a man of the people,” said Horwath. “He was an inspiration to many Canadians, and I hope this tribute will keep his memory alive in future generations.”
“I’m grateful that all three parties could come together to support the motion I introduced today,” said Horwath. “Canada, and the world, owes a debt of gratitude to Mr. Mandela, and this is just a simple gesture to remind Ontarians of his importance.”
