Pack City Hall on Monday Morning!
On Monday August 20, Mayor Tory and Toronto City Council will be voting on whether or not to take Premier Ford to court to stop his reckless interference in Toronto's 2018 election.
Join us at City Hall at 9:15am on Monday August 20 to pack the Council Chamber and demand Mayor Tory and City Council vote for a legal challenge.
Monday August 20, 9:15am-10:15am
Council Chamber, Toronto City Hall
100 Queen Street West (map)
Close to Osgoode Subway Station
Doug Ford’s Bill 5, which gerrymanders our wards and slashes City Council in half in the middle of an election, was just rushed through Queen’s Park by Ford’s majority government. And this Monday, Toronto City Council and Mayor Tory will be voting on what to do about it.
We need Mayor Tory and City Council to stand up to Doug Ford — to stand up for Toronto’s democracy and for our city.
When you get to City Hall on Monday, go up to the Council Chamber and take a seat inside.
We expect the Councillors to go into a private/closed session around 10:15am because much of what they are debating has been deemed confidential by the City Solicitor as it involves litigation. This means we will all be asked to leave.
We will have made our point by showing up in full force for the beginning of their session! We should know their decision by the end of the day and if you're signed up with Progress Toronto we will let you know what happens.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
