Kabitsis was 76 years old at the time of the election, and was a retired real estate salesman. He joined the Communist Party of Canada in 1962. Kabitsis ran for a seat on the Toronto City Council in 1980, calling for a reduction in the cost of the Toronto Transit Commission's Metropass, a shorter term of the Metro Toronto Chairman, and the recognition of day care as a right. His 2008 election biography also indicates that he has been a municipal candidate in Orillia. He is a member of Fair Vote Canada, a group advocating electoral reform.
