Progress Toronto has put together a petition urging the Federal and Provincial governments to provide immediate financial relief to cities and commit to a new deal, a new relationship, with our city to help us build a Toronto that works for everyone. https://www.progresstoronto.ca/petition-toronto-in-crisis
Just as so many Torontonians are struggling to pay rent and put food on the table, COVID-19 emergency spending alongside decades of under-funding has pushed City Hall to a financial breaking point and Mayor Tory is ringing the alarm.
If this isn’t solved quickly, the Mayor says he will have to make massive cuts and stop vital services. That means we will be facing increased fares, fees, and devastating losses to services like housing, transit, fire, community centres, libraries, and child care, right when we need these services most and possibly for the long term. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Take action and make your voice heard by signing this petition.
