Gary Anandasangaree, Federal MP for Scarborough-Rouge Park says "I’ve known Sumi Shan for over 20 years as a friend and colleague, and she has always been committed to helping others. That commitment shines through in everything she does, and is part of why she has succeeded working at Queen’s Park, for not-for-profits and in the private sector. She’s a consensus builder, and has the skills to build relationships and advocate across all levels of government. Sumi is practical, intelligent, and experienced, and she will be a powerful voice for Scarborough-Rouge Park in the legislature. Sumi has my complete support - I know she will achieve great things for her riding."
