Toronto City Councillors
Councillor Mike Del Grande
Doris K H Lam
As a 27 year resident of Ward 39, Scarborough Agincourt, I have been active in the community from the day I moved into the Kennedy & McNicoll area. My activities have included everything from Community Association President, Neighbourhood Watch, Block Parent, Boy Scouts, Church Treasurer and Religious Instructor. These activities led to Municipal and Federal recognition as an active volunteer.
From 1993-2003, I served as the Catholic School Board Trustee for Ward 7 comprising North York and Scarborough Wards. In 2003, I was elected Chair of the Board. In 1996, I was stricken with Acoustic Neuroma, a form of Brain Tumour, which was treated with a Gamma Knife, the gold standard for the affliction. In 1997, OHIP was challenged for out-of-country costs for this procedure and with a positive judgment by the Appeal Board, opened up coverage for other Ontarians. In 2005 the drive to bring this technology was achieved with a Gamma Knife unit being installed at Toronto Western Hospital.
A Chartered Accountant by profession, I hold a B.Comm degree, a Masters in Theological Studies and a Bachelor of Education degree. I have held senior positions at Shoppers Drug Mart where I retired in 2000. Past stints have also included The Office of the Provincial Auditor and Westinghouse Canada.
I have been married for 33 years to Beverly, a Pharmacist and active Girl Guider. We have three children, John, David and Catherine. John is the current Catholic School Board Trustee for Ward 7. I was first elected in 2003 in Ward 39 with an upset win over the previous councillor of 15 years.
