Our province is in crisis. Ontarians are hurting, emergency rooms are being forced to close, and the cost of living is skyrocketing. With public services in peril and interest rates on the rise, people are struggling to pay for groceries, cover transportation costs, and make rent or mortgage payments. We can’t wait any longer. We need a government that will take a serious look at affordability – the cost-of-living crisis and rebuilding our valued public services.
The Ford government won with 18% of the vote. They didn’t campaign on cuts, roll-backs or privatization. Ontarians didn’t vote for privatization of health care, cuts to education or handouts to developers.
A strong majority of Ontarians support our demands: a $20 minimum wage, 10 paid sick days, well-funded public services, affordability, better access to a union and the repeal of Bill 124. Let’s make sure Ford’s Conservatives hear us, loud and clear!
