Queenie Yu: Scarborough-Rouge River byelection candidate Q and A

News Aug 25, 2016 Scarborough Mirror

Candidates from many parties will be on the ballot Sept. 1 for the provincial by-election in Scarborough-Rouge River. We asked the same questions of each candidate, and are presenting their answers here.

QUEENIE YU, INDEPENDENT

(1) Can you please tell us about yourself and why you want to be an MPP?

YU: I was born in Toronto and lived in Scarborough for 20 years. My strong work ethic and dedication to family values comes from my parents who immigrated to Canada. Residents of Scarborough can relate well with me because I have witnessed the challenges that immigrants experience when building a better life. Thanks to my parents’ sacrifices, I earned a BES at the University of Waterloo and an MBA from the University of Ottawa before beginning a career in marketing, sales and fundraising. I have volunteered for The Scarborough Hospital and want to continue giving back to the community.

Many Ontarians, especially those of cultures with more traditional values, disapprove of Kathleen Wynne’s sex-ed curriculum. I want to represent them and send a strong message to all politicians: it is time to eliminate the Wynne sex-ed curriculum which goes against the values which a large majority embrace.

 

(2) What actions would you take to improve transit service in northeast Scarborough?

YU: I grew up in Scarborough so I experienced first-hand our transit problems, specifically how underserviced we are in northeast Scarborough. What is more astounding is the resistance that politicians in other parts of Toronto have to building a subway line in Scarborough. When it seemed that there would be a subway extension to Scarborough Centre, the extension to Sheppard was cancelled. So Scarborough-Rouge River will not be connected to the new subway. If elected, I will work with local city councillors and the government of Ontario – regardless of what party is in power – to make sure that northeast Scarborough’s voice is heard: commute times to downtown are unacceptably long and we need better transit solutions.

 

(3) What do you consider the most important issue in Scarborough-Rouge River?

YU: The reason I am running is to remind voters of Wynne’s disastrous 2015 “sex-ed curriculum”.  The Liberals  - supported by the NDP - have introduced changes that are completely “age inappropriate”. Ontario schools are now teaching things to children at far too young an age. This “sexualization” of children has many parents very upset. Parents do not receive notice of when the material will be taught so they have no real chance to keep their children home that day. To protect our children, the Wynne sex-ed curriculum must be repealed. I call on all parents and concerned voters in this by-election to vote for me, Queenie Yu. By voting for Queenie Yu, you will be sending a message to the Liberals and NDP that you disagree with them on the sex-ed issue. Vote for me and you will be telling the PCs that they must clearly promise to completely eliminate the Wynne sex-ed curriculum.

 

(4)  Many say this area is not treated with respect by the rest of the city or the province. How would you change that?

YU: To get Scarborough-Rouge River “on the map”, I need to get just enough votes to surprise the political elites in downtown Toronto. Your vote would tell the Liberals and NDP that -  because of the sex-ed issue - they will not win the next election. Your vote would show PC Leader Patrick Brown that Ontario parents want him to promise to eliminate the Wynne sex-ed curriculum. Vote for me and Ontarians will thank the voters of this riding for sending a message to the politicians who are promoting or allowing a radical agenda of sexualization of children. Vote for Queenie Yu in this by-election and Scarborough-Rouge River will win the respect of all Ontarians who expressed their disapproval of the sex-ed curriculum.
