Ontario Premier Doug Ford claims his government is “For The People,” yet he introduced Bill 5 – a direct attack on our democracy. If passed, the so-called “Better Local Government Act” will slash Toronto City Council from 47 to 25 members with no consultation, putting the services and representation Torontonians rely on at risk.
Together, alongside other labour unions, community activists and the concerned public, we will send Premier Ford a powerful message: the people have the power! Join your ATU Local 113 Sisters and Brothers on Thursday, August 2 to pack the public gallery at Question Period as Premier Ford and his cabinet answer to the people of Ontario on this dangerous legislation.
