• Invest in Ontarians
    The Ford government is sitting on $22.6 billion of so-called “excess funds” – money stashed away from the public purse that they have no plan to spend any time soon. Finance Minister Peter Bethlenfalvy claims the FAO’s report doesn’t reflect new government spending. [1] But if the province’s growing budget surpluses haven’t been allocated to any public programs, where is this money going? There are so many ways that $22.6 billion could make a difference. Ford and Bethlenfalvy could use it to: fund our public health care system, build more housing, increase disability support funding, support public transit infrastructure, or invest in our education system. And that's just to name a few. A massive petition from thousands of us across the province – demanding that Finance Minister Bethlenfalvy and Premier Ford stop stashing away billions of dollars and instead invest in public services for Ontarians – can ensure these “excess funds” are put to good use. Will you add your name today? [1] https://globalnews.ca/news/9762549/ontario-government-22-billion-excess-funds-fao/

  • Ban plastic water bottles!
    If people are motivated to keep that drink container in order to get their dollar back, perhaps they will refrain from tossing their other garbage, mostly fast food wrappers and cardboard coffee cups, out the window at will. Large fines for littering, rigorously enforced, with community service cleaning up communities and ditches might also help.

  • Mandate condos to offer composting
    It’s a step backwards in our society to build housing that does not promote environmental living practices. Just because it may be more convenient certainly doesn’t make it acceptable. We must act locally to make the changes necessary in every realm of living to address the real threats of pollution and climate change.

  • Ban wood campfires permanently in BC.
    We all need to work together to help reduce wildfires and pollution and banning wood campfires permanently is one way to do this. It doesn't mean we have to give up having campfires, as propane fire pits are readily available, and can provide the same warmth and ambiance of a wood fire without the associated environmental and health problems.

  • Stop Politicizing Safe Supply
    Individuals across Canada are dying from toxic substances. This toxicity is a direct result of current drug prohibition policy that is based on Colonial-era legislation now understood to be racist and not based on evidence for how to manage the potential harms associated with people's use of different substances. My own son died of Fentanyl poisoning at age 21 after losing access to a safer supply and lack of effective treatment options. Safe Supply, separating people from lethally toxic illicit supply, is one part of stemming the horrific tide of death and harms from toxic drugs in Canada. On May 29 (not 31) the House of Commons will vote on an opposition motion to end all safe supply programs. We need to rally all MPs, across all parties, to not support this motion.

  • Pour protéger le droit à l'information régionale
    CONSIDÉRANT l'importance du droit à l'information régionale ; CONSIDÉRANT que la désinformation gagne partout du terrain ; CONSIDÉRANT l’annonce de l’abolition d’un poste de journaliste permanent à temps complet dans la salle de nouvelles de TVA au Saguenay – Lac-Saint-Jean le 17 février dernier ; CONSIDÉRANT qu’un journaliste en moins dans une équipe de cinq personnes dans la salle de nouvelles se traduit par 20 % de moins de contenu, de sujets originaux et régionaux dans les productions quotidiennes de la salle d’information ; CONSIDÉRANT qu’il faut assurer une information juste, vérifiée et diversifiée, et une présence régulière et quotidienne de la grande région du Saguenay – Lac-Saint-Jean sur le réseau TVA et à LCN, tout en tenant compte de l’ampleur du territoire à couvrir et de la diversité des enjeux régionaux à couvrir médiatiquement ; CONSIDÉRANT que les citoyens de la région doivent pouvoir compter sur une diversité de contenu régional et de bénéficier d’un temps d’antenne dédié aux gens de chez eux, à leurs histoires, à leurs enjeux et à leur réalité ; CONSIDÉRANT les particularités propres aux réalités locales et régionales et les appuis reçus de plusieurs acteurs politiques régionaux en ce sens ; CONSIDÉRANT que la population du Saguenay – Lac-Saint-Jean est un téléspectateur assidu de TVA et qu’elle s’attend, en retour, à obtenir une couverture médiatique en conséquence. C'est pourquoi nous demandons à Quebecor (groupe TVA) de revoir sa décision de réduire la taille de l’équipe de la salle des nouvelles de TVA Saguenay – Lac-Saint-Jean et de redonner à la région la couverture qu’elle est en droit de recevoir.

  • Studying GLBI Scenarios changes Generations
    Many aspects of GLBI are not known, such as no example has been given about the Disability portion, and how the non-income tested portion will work. We're asking you Leah, to be detailed and precise for the PBO, all 3 scenarios include much higher earners with higher benefits for those with lower incomes as well, and because Canada deserves correct answers before it becomes a campaign promise again.

  • Protect Public Healthcare: Eric Vandewall
    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.

  • KW Hospital CEOs: Speak Out Against Privatized Surgery
    Privatized health care means people who can pay get better service than people who can't. Private cataract-clinics, for example, offer a better choice of lenses and far shorter wait times to the lucky Ontarians who can afford them. Instead of padding the profits of their corporate buddies, the Ontario government, the OMA and the OHA should recommit themselves to the best possible fully funded public health care for all.

  • Tell your hospital CEO: Protect Public Healthcare: Dr. Andrew Falconer
    Why is this important? 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.

  • Protect Public Healthcare in Mississauga
    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. Hospitals are the frontline of the privatization fight, and CEOs hold a significant amount of sway with the government — and for the most part, they don't hear from the public. If we can flood hospital CEOs with a wave of public pressure from local community members — calling on them to reject Ford's privatization plans — it could be enough for them to speak out against his plans. If the CEOs say no, there will be no one to implement Ford’s privatization.
