Gloria Lindsay Luby is a city councillor and former Deputy Speaker of Toronto City Council in Toronto, Canada for Ward 4 Etobicoke Centre. She represents one of the two Etobicoke Centre wards. Lindsay Luby is also a former Chair of the Government Management Committee.

Lindsay Luby was a successful businesswoman and consultant before entering politics. She first served as a trustee on the Etobicoke school board, and then became an Etobicoke city councillor.

When Etobicoke was merged with the City of Toronto and four other municipalities in 1997, she was elected to the Toronto City Council. She has served as Acting Chair of the Toronto Police Services Board and Chair of the Economic Development and Parks Committee.

A member of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party, she publicly mused about running in the 2003 provincial election to replace Chris Stockwell as the local Member of Provincial Parliament, and was courted by PC leader Premier Ernie Eves.

Lindsay Luby's education includes an honours degree from the University of Western Ontario and a Masters of Education degree from the University of Toronto. She is married to Larry and has three children. She is of Ukrainian heritage.

On September 28, 2009, Lindsay Luby resigned from the Executive Committee claiming that she felt marginalized and didn't agree with Toronto Mayor Miller's agenda. She said, "I never felt part of that small inner circle" referring to other members of the Executive Committee who had closer ties to the mayor. She denied that her resignation had anything to do with Miller's recent announcement to not seek a third term as mayor. "I was reluctant to take this step while all the attention was focused on the mayor's re-election prospects," she said.[1]
