Oct 23, 2019 - Tell Mayor Tory: Don't approve a bad deal!

When: Wednesday October 23rd, 9am
Where: Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen Street West

Join the alliance of residents and organizations who will express concerns at the October 23rd Executive Committee meeting about the subway upload and Ontario Line.

Premier Ford is considering dropping his plans to take over the TTC subway. This could be a huge win for riders. But there's a big catch.

In exchange, Premier Ford is pressuring Mayor John Tory to approve and spend billions on the Ontario Line. This is a problem because the Ontario Line will be a public-private partnership and questions about the cost of fares, construction timelines, community concerns, and capacity have not been fully answered.

Oct 24, 2019 - Build Solidarity: Rally for Dundas and Sherbourne

When: Thursday October 24th, 6pm
Where: Dundas and Sherbourne

The downtown east belongs to all its residents. The health and homeless services at Dundas and Sherbourne serve a critical need for the area's poor people and save lives. But some wealthier neighbours are agitating for their closure and are opposed to any new homeless services. The resulting tensions are escalating and the battle is turning ugly.

Toronto's deadly housing crisis and severe shelter shortage are responsible for escalating homelessness. Attacking the people suffering its worst consequences or the services they rely on doesn't solve the issue. It only shows a vicious disregard for poor people's lives.

We can build a vibrant neighbourhood by choosing solidarity over bigotry. United, we can fight to turn 214-230 Sherbourne into affordable rent-geared-to-income housing, build adequate shelters, and expand health services for all.
