Special Bulletin: Paid Sick Days

Special Community Update: 
Paid Sick Days


Yesterday, the Ford government voted down the Ontario NDP's bill to guarantee paid sick days to all workers in Ontario. 

This is an absolute disgrace. 

Workers in Ontario deserve paid sick days, and while they ought to have had them before COVID-19 arrived in Ontario, they need them now more than ever.

Even though the Ford government voted our bill down, we're going to keep pushing to bring this positive change to our province. 

We need your help to get this done.

Here's what to do:

  1. Sign the petition - click here.
  2. Record a video like this one and post it to social media.
  3. Use the hashtag #PaidSickDaysSaveLives on social media.
Let's make sure that this PC government hears our community loud and clear. 

Ontario wants paid sick days. 

In Solidarity,

Dear Community,

Join me and Save Ontario's Science Centre on Sunday in Wells Hill Park to speak out against Doug Ford's scheme to move the Ontario Science Centre to Ontario Place, which has now led to the surprise closure of the Science Centre.

This benefits no one. Not the people of Toronto who are losing a beloved insitution or the 400+ employees of the OSC, many of whom will lose their jobs.

Meet us in Wells Hill Park at St Clair and Bathurst to tell Doug Ford NO.

Dear Community,

The house rose early for the summer on Thursday last week, so it's been a full week of community events.


Raise ODSP and OW Rates

Before the house was adjourned early by the conservative government, I was proud to table a petition calling for the doubling of ODSP and OW rates in Ontario.

Recently, I heard from Disability Without Poverty - Ontario at their Queen's Park Lobby Day. People with disabilities in Ontario are struggling to make ends meet. Enough is enough. It's time to raise the rates!

Thank you to Dr. Sally Palmer for sharing this petition with my office. I will continue to stand with you until these demands are met.
