Etobicoke (January 29, 2019) – Borys Wrzesnewskyj, Member of Parliament (MP) for Etobicoke Centre, hosted his annual New Year’s Levee on Saturday, January 19.

Dozens of community members braved the snow to join Wrzesnewskyj and friends for the event at the Neilson Park Creative Centre. The free event provides residents of Etobicoke Centre with the opportunity to speak with their MP over light refreshments in a relaxed environment and celebrate the New Year.

“It is an honour to serve Etobicoke Centre,” said Wrzesnewskyj. “I am humbled by the support of the community and so proud of everything that we have achieved over the years. I share your passion for our community and look forward to a very productive 2019.”

Also present at the levee was Yvan Baker, former MPP for Etobicoke Centre and long-time friend of Wrzesnewskyj.

“It was such a pleasure to spend time with so many members of our community and with Borys,” said Baker, who also worked in Wrzesnewskyj’s constituency office before pursuing a career in business. “He is a fantastic advocate for so many causes important to Canadians and particularly for issues important to our riding.”

Wrzesnewskyj is the Member of Parliament for the riding of Etobicoke Centre. A third-generation Ukrainian-Canadian and local business owner, Borys has lived in Etobicoke Centre for over two decades, proudly representing the riding in the Canadian House of Commons from 2004-2011 and again from 2015 to present. Last fall, Wrzesnewskyj announced that he will not seek re-election in 2019. Yvan Baker has announced that he is seeking the federal Liberal nomination in the riding.
