It is hard to believe an entire year has passed since the Progressive Conservatives took power in Ontario. The fears expressed before the election, that the province would take an enormous step backwards under Doug Ford, seem quite understated in hindsight. Looking back on this past year of senseless cuts, regressive policies and outrageous scandals is depressing- but keep in mind that Doug Ford’s popularity has dropped faster and farther than any previous Premier. The people of Ontario are better than this government.
The past year has also seen a tremendous fight back from progressive minded community groups, activists, unions and the general public. Our fifteen volunteer chapters in Ontario have been exceptionally busy:
- forming and participating in new coalitions to fight Ford,
-participated in rallies and protests at MPP offices, Ministry buildings and bussed in to several huge rallies at Queens Park
