Keep Hydro Public campaign, next phase launch @ Mid-Scarborough Hub
Feb 27 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Keep Hydro Public campaign, next phase launch @ Mid-Scarborough Hub | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

Keep Hydro Public has launched the next phase of the campaign and is organizing in communities across Ontario to hold Liberal MPPs accountable for their decisions.

On Feb 27, the campaign will hold a local launch in Scarborough and kick things off with a Keep Hydro Public leaflet action. MPPs Brad Duguid and Lorenzo Berardinetti need to speak out now against hydro privatization. This will be the start of many on-the-ground, local actions to remind these Liberal MPPs that they have a choice, and that their constituents are paying attention.

We need you to attend the launch on Feb 27 and help kick off our ground campaign.
