• Dieticians and diabetic educators are essential
    The services of dieticians and diabetic educators are and essential health service to the patients they serve. Their expertise help individuals control their own blood sugar. Uncontrolled blood sugar can lead to organ failure and amputation. Delaying care is dangerous and unacceptable. A lot of these service can be delivered via the phone.

  • Ensure that Disabled People and Support Workers In Ontario are PPE Secure
    I have already reached out to Toronto Public Health, Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Government Services, The Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, all without a response or a plan to address this issue. Although there is a requirement for PPE for disabled people to receive personal support and assistance, no individuals should be paying for PPE out of pocket, and yet, this is happening. I have talked to many non-profits, that have shared the concern that there is no commitment or funding for PPE for disabled people who need access to it for their activities of daily living where physical distancing is not possible. This petition requests that all levels of government work together to ensure that Attendants, Nurturing Assistants and people with Disabilities in Ontario are PPE secure. It appears that the government has forgotten about disabled people and the folks that support us. This lack of action is unacceptable. This lack of action puts lives at risk. Regards, Terri-Lynn Langdon, MSW, RSW Ontario Institute for Studies In Education, Social Justice Education, University of Toronto

  • Expanding the role of Toronto's mental health crisis intervention teams
    Mental health calls are largely handled by untrained officers who don't have the skills to de-escalate crisis situations. This leads to unnecessary violence and killing of people in crisis, of which poor and IBPOC are largely overrepresented. In cities where mental health crisis teams are properly implemented, they provide clear benefits, including: - reducing carceral costs, - reducing the incidents of violence from the police, - reducing repeat calls for service, - reducing costly psychiatric hospitalizations, and - improving the use of officers’ time [1].

  • De-ratify the CC-FIPA
    In 2013, when the Hupacasath FN realized the negative impacts of the CC-FIPA, they launched legal action with the help of West Coast Environmental Law. They lost the case; now China has more economic power than all Cdn. First Nations put together. With the severe impacts of climate change, Canada has a global responsibility to save what is left of the ancient forests.

  • Equal pay for Home Care Workers in Ontario as workers in Long-Term Care.
    From this article in the Toronto Star on July 31st 2020 - "We know that home care workers in Ontario are already paid considerably less than those in long-term care. This situation must be corrected, not made worse. To stabilize the entire health system, home care workers must be paid at parity with those in long-term care. Workers in both sectors deserve a raise for the critical support they provide to our seniors. Ontario’s seniors are relying on the government to protect them. Safe, reliable, and compassionate home care from well-trained and well-paid staff is key to improving overall care for seniors."

  • Need for significant Toronto Police reform
    There is clear evidence and research that we must organize public safety very differently, especially for our Black, Indigenous and other marginalized communities.To do this we need a strong catalyst to ensure this happens in a timely manner. The reduction of the police budget and reallocation to a range of community services led by mental health and other community leaders can be this catalyst. Any attempts to reform within the police budget and led by the police, as evidenced by the last five years in Toronto, will not produce tangible, timely and necessary results. Mayors in New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis have committed to this. As reported in the Globe and Mail June 18 the Mayor states "there is unprecedented consensus on confronting anti-Black racism". However he and the Board Chair are proposing changes within the current budget and under the purview of the Toronto Police. We are asking the Mayor and Board Chair to approve Councillor Matlow's motion to reduce the budget by 10%, restructure the police and hand over a number of the current duties to the appropriate community services and leaders. This is a small amount in a $1.22 billion budget. Many organizations are facing the challenge of managing reduced budgets/revenues of greater amounts with the current COVID virus. Surely the Toronto Police can do the same. Recent events, research and statements by many leaders are well documented in the media and confirm that there is systemic racism in our police forces against our Black, Indigenous and other marginalized communities. It is also well documented that significant, not incremental change is required. Approximately 25%+ of my property taxes goes to the police budget and a very small amount to community services. No one has asked me, a tax paying resident, if that is where I would like a large portion of my taxes allocated. I have also had a personal experience with Toronto police practices in that my son-in-law, an African American university educated social worker helping youth at risk in downtown Toronto was carded twice for no apparent reason within his first 6-12 months of moving to Toronto. I was deeply ashamed of our city. Many citizens, community leaders and research agree change is required and much of that change to strengthen public safety for our Black, Indigenous and other communities must include the removal of many duties from police and given to a range of community services. To leave the change in the hands of the police will result in slow, incremental change, if any.

  • Let's rename Coxwell Avenue
    Females and those who identify as females need to feel safe when they walk down the street. Not revictimized by the street name. The name of this street is highly rapacious and offensive and wrongly empowers men and for this reason we need to change it to something better.
