Benjamin Dichter of Toronto, ON, was nominated by Martin Abell
Benjamin is a determined political person. He first came to my attention when he ran municipally in Ward 27 in 2014. It was my privilege to help him. Then he came forward after that experience saying he wanted to provide a conservative voice to LGBTQ issues. I endorsed such an endeavor and was glad to see he launched the initiative successfully and that LGBTory has a growing presence. Most importantly LGBTory played a critical role in the Conservative Party of Canada in seeing that provisions against gay marriage were removed from the party policies.
