• End the strikes - pay PSAC workers fairly
    155,000 government workers — including CRA workers, cooks and cleaners, Coast Guard search and rescue teams, and passport and immigration staff — are at breaking point, and are now striking in what could be the biggest strike in Canadian history. [1-2] Public service workers are critical to our everyday lives — they provide countless services for people from coast to coast. And like all workers, they deserve to be treated fairly. For years they have been at the bargaining table fighting for better conditions, job security and fair wages that keep up with inflation. [3] The strike is all over the news, and already the government is trying to pit the public against federal workers, blaming those going on strike for asking for too much. We need to show the government we aren’t buying it: that we expect them to come to the table and give workers a fair deal with the wages and working conditions they deserve. A rising tide lifts all boats — the fight for fair wages is everyone’s fight. If you agree, will you add your name to the solidarity statement now.

  • Petition Toronto City Council to Lower Prices
    We are a group of community members in Toronto’s west end who are feeling the effects of high inflation and soaring cost of living. High prices are making it difficult for working people to pay for housing, food and fuel. We are worried about the impact this is having on people throughout our community, and we are organizing to do something about it! We want to see action from all levels of government – municipal, provincial and federal– to roll back and control prices for basic necessities. These include rent and mortgage payments, gasoline and heating fuel, groceries and transit fares. Governments in Canada have used price controls on several occasions, to help maintain an affordable cost of living for working people. They need to do it again now! We are committed to fighting for our community through petition campaigns, meetings with local politicians, networking with like-minded community groups, public events and more. We are prepared to do whatever it takes to win lower prices! If you’re interested in fighting for an affordable cost of living, please connect with People for Lower Prices at [email protected] https://www.instagram.com/peopleforlowerprices/

  • O Canada: it’s time to change the national anthem
    Over 50% of Canada’s lands and waters belong to Nations who have never signed a treaty or surrendered their territory. 89% of Canadian lands known as “Crown Lands” exist on territory that Indigenous Peoples have never ceded or surrendered. In signing historic treaties, Indigenous Nations did not give up land ownership. Signatories to the numbered treaties understood that the land would be shared. Despite that, land set aside for Indigenous Nations makes up just 0.2% of land in Canada. It would be alienating and colonial to sing “God Save the Queen” today — though that is what people sang in Canada until 1980. It is just as colonial, now, to erase Indigenous jurisdiction over ancestral lands by using the phrase “our home and native land”. The times they are a-changing — and so should our national anthem.

  • Tell your hospital CEO: Protect Public Healthcare: David Graham
    Hospital CEOs hold a significant amount of sway with the government — and for the most part they don't hear from the public. Right now, most hospital CEOs haven't rejected Ford's privatization plans. In fact, a couple of them have actually spoken out in support of it. But they haven't heard from the community their hospital serves.

  • Surely We Can Build a Better Economy?
    People can join existing co-operatives and social enterprises. They can take their money out banks who are funding the oil industry and put it in Credit Unions. They can lobby any politician they can trust. They can be part of the solution, part of the building a better economy. They can demand community health centres where they have a say. They can support family and local business and seldom use Amazon or Walmart.

  • Stop P3/ Deferred cost to the future
    P3 school is like buying a big purchase which you can not pay off and you make minimum payments!! Interest will cost the government more in the future. Check out other provinces which had to buy back the P3 ! a lack of accountability of private companies to the people, leading to cost overruns that impose a burden on future generations. When building P3 School , it did not work other provinces, why would it work in Manitoba
