Budget Cuts or Poverty Reduction? A Public Action Forum
Wed, 19 October 2016, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
In 2015, Toronto Mayor and Council adopted an anti-poverty plan. They promised to improve access to housing, transit, child care and recreation. Now they are considering a $600 million cut to these and other programs and services. That's not right!
Come, meet others, get informed and stand up for our city!
- Learn how city budget cuts will affect you
- Build your advocacy skills
- Join the fight for a fairer city that benefits us all!
A light supper will be provided. TTC tokens available. On-site childminding available if requested by October 17.
Bring your neighbours or your friends to the event!
