Wed, March 31, 2021: DAY 02! Provincial Demands Day of Action

It’s time to call out (Doug) FordNation and the Ontario Provincial Government! #WeDemandActionTO – The crisis with COVID outbreaks and conditions in Toronto shelter spaces is critical – isolation spaces are full, positive clients are being sent back to shelters to try and isolate, the Ford’s Government’s refusal to fund supportive housing, prevent evictions and other initiatives in Toronto is shameful. See the demands of over 60 organizations in Toronto, representing countless frontline & healthcare workers, outreach and volunteer networks, faith groups and more. Doug Ford and the Conservatives must act now!!!! Read our letter and list of demands to the City, the Province and Federal Governments here: https://docs.google.com/…/1iGR5k4epEX3vu8Tby3M9x0R…/edit
