Joined by his family and friends Toor was met with loud cheers as he handed over his nomination papers to the city clerk. 

"I am running because I know the city that I am so proud of, can do better," said Toor. "When our residents work hard each day to make a better life for their family, they need their government to work equally hard for them. When our city desperately needs change, I can either watch from the sidelines and wish somebody could do better, or I can choose to roll up my sleeves and get the job done. I have signed up to fight for every resident of Wards 9 & 10 who is proud of Brampton and wants the best for our city's future."

Toor is no stranger to City Council, having worked as an advisor to former Brampton Mayor, Linda Jeffrey. He has also delegated to this term’s council numerous times on issues impacting residents across the city. 

A successful entrepreneur in the construction industry, Toor brings several years of expertise in city building. And through Pattar Capital, a venture capital fund, Toor has successfully supported youth-driven community initiatives.

Toor is committed to serving the community through active volunteer. He's demonstrated this with his extensive volunteer work such as providing flood relief efforts in Brampton, Ottawa and Montreal, working with local organizations to leading Community Vaccine Clinics and joining Khalsa Aid in Poland helping Ukrainian refugees fleeing war.

During this pandemic, he also worked hard to support COVID-19 vaccination clinics, including helping to organize the largest clinic in the Region of Peel.

“I’ve been meeting with residents over the last few months as part of my listening tour to hear their concerns,” added Toor. “Every Brampton resident deserves to live a healthier and happier life and they deserve a Council that works for them. Residents are fed up with the circus show at City Hall and they're looking for honest and transparent representation. I look forward to earning the support of voters in Wards 9 & 10."

Brampton residents go to the polls on October 24th.
