Lord, we thank You for the life of Marit Stiles, MPP for Davenport Riding within the City of Toronto. Father God, Marit has long been a strong voice and advocate for our publicly funded education and is, therefore, a good choice to be the NDP’s critic for Education. She is also a Member of the Standing Committee on Government Agencies. As she serves in these vital portfolios, we pray 1 Kings 3:9 for her today: “give Your servant a discerning heart to govern Your people and to distinguish between right and wrong.” May Marit know and always choose right as she serves the people of Ontario daily. Lord Jesus, bless and protect her, and her partner Jordan and their daughters. In Jesus name we pray, Amen……..

Prior to that, Marit was the National Director of Public Policy and Research for ACTRA, where she worked to strengthened Canada’s arts and cultural sector, and served as a board member at the Toronto Foundation for Student Success. A passionate advocate for public education, Marit is committed to ensuring local schools have the resources they need to foster strong communities and help students succeed.
