Doug Ford’s PC Party of Ontario is holding a policy conference on Saturday, February 22 in Niagara Falls. The Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) is gathering working people from all over Ontario to rally outside against the Ford government’s reckless policies and massive cuts to the public services we rely on.
