EVERY VOTE COUNTS!
The 2018 municipal elections have been hijacked by the Ford Conservatives – but we cannot let them hijack the outcome! It’s up to every one of us to help elect more progressive voices than ever to public office in Toronto and York Region. The candidates endorsed by Labour Council have all gone through a rigorous process of interviews and careful consideration of the strengths they would bring to public office. With the arbitrary reduction of Toronto City Council to only 25 seats, there are many good people who have been pushed aside by Doug Ford’s shameful abuse of power. We cannot afford to lose proven leaders in tough races. And we cannot afford to have a majority of Toronto City Council going along with an austerity or privatization agenda from either Queen’s Park or the Mayor’s office. This is a one of the many reasons to support of Jennifer Keesmaat for Mayor of Toronto.
Canada’s largest city can only prosper if there is a strong foundation of public services and a recognition of the growing economic disparities that need to be tackled, and a strong commitment to equity. In York Region, the similar issues face the voters. Labour Council’s 2018 election program combines key issues that matter to working people.
ON OCTOBER 22nd MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
