Mark your calendars for a pop-up rally outside MPP Rod Phillips’ office on March 8 from 3:30-4:30 pm. We are fighting the cuts to social and economic rights for women and marginalized people. We are calling on the Ford PC Government to
REINSTATE paid sick days, the scheduled increase to a $15 minimum wage, legislation to increase pay transparency, regulations that support equal pay for equal work, and all other worker protections gained under the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act;
REVERSE changes to daycare regulations that allow more children per caregiver;
REVERSE the retroactive cuts to funding for the Ontario College of Midwives;
COMMIT to funding increases to Sexual Assault Centres;
RESTORE the Roundtable on Violence Against Women;
RESTORE the Child and Youth Advocate Commissioner’s office
INVEST in equitable, needs-based autism services for all children who need them


When: Friday, 8 March at 3:30 PM
Where: Outside MPP Rod Phillips’ Office: 1 Rossland Rd W, Ajax, ON L1Z 1Z2
