Child Care in Toronto is already the most expensive in the country . And now, according to a new City of Toronto report, Doug Ford is cutting at least $15 million a year from Toronto child care - which could rise to $49 million a year once much-needed new child care centres are opened. This immediately puts over 700 affordable child care spaces at risk.
But Ford has backed down on his cuts before after hearing from thousands of people. Use our form now to send a message to Ford, his Minister of Children, Community and Social Services, your MPP, and Toronto City Council today. Click here to sign the Petition
In just a few days, Toronto City Council is voting on whether or not to stand up for our city and take Doug Ford to the Supreme Court of Canada for his interference in our active 2018 municipal elections. You remember, that time Doug Ford changed all the rules and wards in the middle of our election, weeks before voters went to the polls — an unprecedented attack on Toronto and local democracy.
We’ve got some exciting news! Thanks to years of work from advocates across the city, Toronto City Council is *this close* to establishing Toronto’s own Gender Equality Office and creating an Intersectional Gender Equity Strategy! Both would help make sure our city services and programs are more effective and help to create a more equal city. Click here to use our form to show your support.
