Province-Wide Video Tour
Ontario Council of Hospital Unions/CUPE is teaming up with the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty and local community allies to take on an important message on the road. The latest Provincial budget stands to deepen the crisis of poverty in Ontario by freezing social assistance rates and delaying planned increases in child benefits.
Please help to circulate the information about each stop to locals and members in the area. We encourage you to attend the tour stop and join us in our demand for an increase in social assistance rates to a level where poor people can live with dignity. We are also demanding a full restoration of the Special Diet – a food supplement program which provided up to $250 a month for those who could not afford health food – which was gutted by the Liberal government in 2011.
