    EPCitizen Q&A: Terri Chu

    Terri Chu was a 2013 Everyday Political Citizen, a project that which celebrates people from coast to coast to coast who get a little bit political. Terri is founder and organizer of grassroots not-for-profit Why Should I Care? She’s currently running for Toronto City Council in Ward 20 and her election is coming up on October 27. Samara caught up with Terri on the campaign trail to hear how she got engaged in politics and what everyday political citizenship is all about.
