She became the first ever LGBTQ critic in Ontario; former Xtra! Di Novo has been an outspoken advocate for cyclist and cyclist safety, including her "one-meter rule", which the government finally passed as part of their larger transport bill in 2015.In 2015 Di Novo's Bill 77, which prohibits conversion therapy for youth (therapy intended to prevent young people from identifying as LGBTQ) passed and became law.The Liberals also did not mention Di Novo's expression of sympathy for Homolka's victims' families and the undue suffering she believed the media circus surrounding Karla was causing them.Many accused the Liberals of conducting a smear campaign.Di Novo ran for re-election in the 2011 Ontario general election.Her main opponent was the Liberal Party candidate Courtney Pasternak.
During the campaign, Di Novo acknowledged having been both a "street kid" and a user of recreational drugs in her youth. The Liberals alleged that Di Novo endorsed the church ordination of pedophiles and axe murderers in Qu(e)erying Evangelism, when in fact she did not, and took Di Novo's past comments about Canadian murderer Karla Homolka out of context, saying the comments compared Homolka to a Christ-like figure, where instead they were used in reference to the dangers of scapegoating.Indications from polling in the summer suggested that Pasternak might win; but on election day, Di Novo easily won re-election.
