In June 2015, Soo’s Private Member’s Bill 61, The Terry Fox Act, became Ontario’s official extension of honour to Terry Fox by designating the second Sunday after Labour Day in September as Terry Fox Day.

Soo introduced Bill 53, to proclaim May 14th as "Children and Youth in Care Day” in 2014. This legislation was unanimously approved by the Legislature. This Act recognizes May 14 of each year as Children and Youth in Care Day, acknowledging the enormous contributions current and former Crown and Society wards make to the Province, as well as the strength, bravery and resilience shown by these children and youth in the face of adversity.

Soo also brought forward a resolution to the Ontario Legislature calling on the Government of Ontario to declare May as childhood obesity awareness month as part of its strategy to combat childhood obesity. This resolution received unanimous support by all parties.
