• Privatization Hurts Canadians: Protect Public Healthcare
    Healthcare workers were praised as heroes of the pandemic and it is time to show them exactly how much we mean those words. Everyone can find themselves in a health complication and we all age. Canadians have always been proud of our 'universal' healthcare and the less fortunate cannot afford an even more discriminatory and exclusive system. We need to hold the people truly responsible for this crisis to task and speak fervently in favor of public health for all

  • Kingston Health Sciences Centre Must Reject Privitazion
    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. As public members of society, we believe a resilient, well-funded, public healthcare system is crucial to our community. Our CEO needs to hear your voice, NOW. Please sign the petition and show your support for our Public Healthcare system. Say NO to Doug Ford's privatization plans.

  • Tell Southlake Hospital to reject Ford's privatization plan
    We as Canadians, who are fortunate to have public healthcare, will defend this element that makes our country great. The consequences of our healthcare becoming privatized are far reaching and will have a negative impact on not just low-income and marginalized people, but nearly everyone. In March, 2023, Doug Ford proposed Bill 60, on the first day of the current legislative season, after changing the rules of Legislature so that bills could pass by even faster, without the need for democratic discussion in parliament. Under Bill 60, private clinics can be established by any third party/corporation without being subject to the conflict of interest and ethics regulations of public servants and without public notice. Bill 60 essentially hands over the roles of Minister and the Cabinet to any third party/corporation that wishes to open a private clinic, overturning the long history of the Independent Health Facilities Act, which was introduced in 1990 in order to prevent privatized health care in Canada. Tell Arden Krystal, the CEO of Southlake Regional Health Centre, to push back against Ford and say a clear "NO" to private health care in Newmarket, Ontario. It is not the way forward, it is not a solution, and it is not an improvement on our current health care system.

  • No Privatization of Headwaters!
    Healthcare workers, unions and medical experts have been ringing the alarm bells for months. If hospital CEOs hear from the community they serve, we can convince them to not only reject Ford's privatization plans but to also share the solutions like repealing wage-suppression Bill 124 and increasing spending on public healthcare. A resilient, well-funded, public healthcare system is crucial to our community!

  • 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.
