Make Your Concerns Known
Great news. Premier Doug Ford has reversed his government’s announced plan to cut funding for public health, land ambulances and childcare funding in 2019. This is an encouraging sign that he will respond when residents express their concerns about the impact of reductions in social programs. However, there are signs that proper funding for these important services may still be at risk in 2020 and beyond.
We encourage you to write to your MPP and to Premier Ford to let them know how important it is that plans to cut public health, land ambulances and childcare funding have been reversed because you value these services. Join with members of Ottawa City Council to let the Provincial Government know that there needs to be meaningful conversations with cities and communities to fully understand the impacts of any future funding reductions.
At the same time, you can express your concerns about other cuts that were announced in the 2019 Provincial Budget:
