As the Canadian federal election for parliamentarians scheduled to take place on October 21, 2019 draws near, Dave Madder, one the city’s most successful community leaders and former municipal Councillor candidate (Fmr.) has endorsed the candidature of Stephen Abara, a Nigeria-Canadian based citizen for the federal parliamentary election in Scabourough-Guild wood (ward 24) and federal electoral district Ontario Canada.
In a statement signed and made available to journalists by Mr. Dave Madder, Stephen’s official campaign agent explained that Stephen Abara had spent his entire career working to keep the neighbourhoods and families of Ontarians safe from crime and violence for the last 10 years.

“While other community leaders and activists have shifted their operations elsewhere living the city behind for greener pastures, Dave has remained here, working with and for numerous organizations for the last 30 years. I cannot thank Mr. Dave enough for his support” Abara noted.
Mr. Abara has got what it takes to take the federal district to a new dimension in politics. He has come to serve you and not to answer a politician but a ‘public servant’ for the poor, the rich and wealthy and for the middle class.
Dave Madder who described Mr. Abara as the ‘new face’ in politics said theindependent Member of Parliament (MP) Candidate is “a man with extra ordinaries gifts and capacity to lead the young and old in the new 21 century Scarborough Guild wood politics for change. A dynamic leader and community ‘politician’ well educated, versed in literature and philosophy, who has transverse Europe, America, Africa and willing to explore more of Asia, Caribbean nations, Middle East and many more seeking and creating avenues for business and trade relations for Canada if elected.”
Continuing he said: “His leadership style and qualities is dynamic and inclusive rather than exclusive as most politicians of our time. He’s experienced and multi-talented in engaging the youths into politics for the betterment of the country, and for reduction of crimes and criminal activities in the city.
