Don Valley East resident Peter Karl Youngren is the kind of person who takes action when he sees a problem.
He’s volunteered in refugee camps, started a non-denominational church and founded a charity to help at risk youth.
Now the Victoria Village resident is running for council in Ward 34.
“I live here. I work here. I love it here,” he said.
He’d like to see more leadership to solve local and city problems including the disappearance of a local resident.
