Affordable Housing Now!

For far too long, Doug Ford has put profit before people, and we're seeing the effects of these dastardly priorities in our communities and in our own homes.

The average cost of rent in Toronto has surged to over $3,000. At a time when grocery prices are skyrocketing, transit fares have increased, and our health care is in crisis, this is nothing short of immoral. The folks at 55 Brownlow are just a few of the many facing unneeded demovictions all done in the name of money money money. Let's rally together and remind this government that if they aren't for the people, then the people won't stand by.

Join fellow concerned community members on Saturday, April 29 at 1PM to demand affordable housing for all!

Delegate Selection Meeting for the 2022 Ontario NDP Convention

NOTE ON RESOLUTIONS

We've unfortunately made a mistake regarding the resolutions. I was mistaken as to the deadline for submission (it is actually December 19th), and while we WILL be able to select delegates, we WON'T be able to submit resolutions from our riding association this year. We've determined that there is no way around this after consulting with NDP staff about the rules, and that the meeting date cannot be changed at this point. I deeply apologize for this mistake.
Any resolutions already sent to us are being submitted to the Toronto Area Council for consideration. I hope that you will all attend on the 20th if you can to select delegates. I believe that almost all the resolutions that would have been discussed will be sent in by other Riding Associations or groups, and the delegates are the ones who determine whether or not those resolutions are adopted by the party in the end. 
I apologize once again for the error and I hope you will still join us and MPP Jill Andrew on Monday

The Provincial Convention for the Ontario New Democratic Party is being held online in February 2022

Registered members of the provincial party’s Toronto-St. Paul’s riding association will choose 17 delegates to send to convention during a virtual members meeting on Monday, December 20, from 6 pm to 9:00 pm.

If you would like to be a delegate, but cannot attend the meeting, notify us by December 17 and we will make sure that your name is included for people to vote on. If you send us a statement of a few sentences, we will read it on your behalf. Please also specify your gender identity if you are comfortable sharing it, as there are seats reserved for non-cis-gendered men.

Everyone who RSVPs will receive a zoom link on December 19.

 

Tenants Rights & A Fair LTB

Tenants Rights & A Fair LTB

Schedule 27 in Ontario’s new Bill 276, which if passed, if passed, will punish Ontarians who record and share proceedings at tribunals, including the Human Rights Tribunal and the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB). Those who do will now face fines of up to $25,000. 

Recordings by tenants have helped inform the public the LTB is conducting a dangerous eviction blitz in the middle of a pandemic. They have also provided evidence of breaches of procedural fairness. 

On Thursday, May 13 from 6-7 P.M please join me and MPP Jessica Bell, Nina Hill of Kensington-Bellwoods Community Legal Services to talk about what these changes mean for tenants and how to fight for a fair LTB.

Click here to register.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

 

I have also introduced a motion to address this issue.

Motion 156 
That, in the opinion of this House, the Ford government should, as part of an effort to protect the rights of tenants, withdraw the proposed amendments to the Statutory Powers Procedure Act from Bill 276, including the punitive fines for recording proceedings, and instead develop procedures to ensure broadcasts and recordings of such hearings adhere to the core open courts principle as part of an effort to ensure transparency and accountability of the tribunal process.

Town hall for tenants

A lot of people in Toronto-St. Paul’s rent, and a lot of renters are struggling right now.  Now, with COVID-19 those struggled have been amplified.

  • Rent
  • Repairs and renovations
  • Staying safe in our homes

To address these concerns, MPP Jill Andrew will be hosting a Facebook Tenants Town Hall on Monday, April 27, from 6 pm to 7pm.

She will be joined by Suze Morrison, Critic for Tenant’s Rights and Sara Singh, Critic for Housing!

If rent is an issue for you PLEASE JOIN US!

In recent weeks, much of the lives we know have been thrown into temporary suspension – and many challenges have emerged in our community.

Frankly, the current provincial government’s response has not gone far enough. Too many people are still falling through the cracks!

In response to this, I will be hosting a digital town hall event on Facebook Live with a few of my MPP colleagues who will be able to answer some of your questions.

Please send us your questions by Friday at noon to [email protected].

 

Joining me will be:

Lisa Gretzky – Critic for Social Services

Joel Harden  – Critic for Seniors and Critic for Accessibility and Persons with Disabilities

Teresa Armstrong – Critic for Home Care and Long Term Care

Jamie West – Critic for Labour

And possibly others too!

I look forward to seeing you there!
