Stand Up for Our City
The Ford Government has announced plans to cut public health, education, child care and transit, reducing access to services and making life less affordable in our city.
Polls show the Province’s cuts to public services are unpopular, and Premier Ford’s support is falling as a result . People want a premier who invests in our city, not one who makes deep cuts to services we rely on.
Tell Premier Ford and your MPP it’s time to stop the cuts and invest in our city.
What the Province’s cuts could mean for our city:
Public Health :
Student breakfast & lunch programs cut
Daycare & long-term care home inspections cut
Emergency response to outbreaks like SARS & H1N1 cut
Dental clinics closed
Vaccination programs cut
Increasing class sizes to up to 40 students
1,000 fewer adults in TDSB schools
Fewer course choices for students
Funding for school repairs cut
Fewer supports for vulnerable students
Child Care :
$50 million in cuts to child care this year
The loss of over 6,000 affordable child care spaces
Rising costs for all parents & guardians
Longer waits for affordable spaces
Public Transit :
Cutting $1 billion for day-to-day operations over 10 years
Fewer repairs to aging transit infrastructure
Higher transit fares
Less reliable service
Use our tool to tell your MPP and Premier Ford to stop the planned and future cuts to public health, education, child care, and transit, and instead invest in strengthening these services and a city that works for everyone.
