Rachel Dokhoian is a Media Production student at Ryerson University. She has lived in Thornhill since early childhood and knows that Thornhill is a tight-knit community like no other. Rachel has been inspired to run for MPP of her home riding because she believes the future is now. The Green Party’s approach – environment first – is an excellent vehicle for the type of change that Rachel believes in.
Being a student of the TV and Film industry has taught Rachel that teamwork makes the dream work. She is committed to working with people of all different viewpoints to create effective change.
Rachel enjoys being involved with her local community. She has previously organized several fundraising events for the Canadian Cancer Society and the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. She has also spent a year volunteering with the Vaughan City Playhouse Theatre, a Thornhill staple.
Rachel is new to the Green Party but knows she will be a lifelong member. Her favourite policies include the merging of the 4 public school systems into 2, and decreasing the voting age to 16.
