On Monday, March 25, I joined our Regional Organizer Mark Calzavara in Toronto at a conference on building the people power to stop the Ford government’s regressive plans for the province.
The Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) organizers of the Power Of Many gathering had reportedly been expecting 300 participants. Over 900 labour and community activists showed up, highlighting the appetite for serious organizing to resist Ford’s attacks on people and the planet.
The gathering began with an Indigenous welcome and territorial land acknowledgement, which recognized the need to disrupt colonialism as we build the resistance to the Ford agenda.
WHAT’S AT STAKE
In office for less than a year so far, Ford’s attacks have already been swift and far-reaching.
