The Council of Canadians is calling donors to the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario (PCO) and asking them to stop giving the party money until the Ford government stops undermining democracy in the province.
“The Ford government promised not to cut the Basic Income Pilot Program – they lied about that,” said Mark Calzavara, an Organizer with the Council of Canadians. “They concealed their secret plans to gut Toronto City Council until after they were elected. And now they have announced they will use the notwithstanding clause anytime they want to ram through their agenda.”
Council of Canadians chapter volunteers have started calling PCO donors listed on the Elections Ontario website (sample script below). 10,510 donors gave $4.9 million to the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario in 2017.
