Day of Protest

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 / 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

The Ontario government could limit debate to only 5-hours next week under the new rules created by the Ford government to stifle debate. We expect they will try to railroad through Bill 175 as quickly as possible.

We are building the biggest show of strength we can to stop this. Please help.

12 o’clock, noon, on Wednesday June 24 ~ On the lawn at Queen’s Park (outside the Ontario Legislature in Toronto) and across Ontario.

We are asking everyone to keep 2-metres apart at all times and wear masks. For those who want to, you can join in your car by forming a car cavalcade that circles Queen’s Park on the inside lane of Queen’s Park Circle from noon until 12:30 pm.

We are asking local coalitions and concerned citizens to organize similar protest with the same safety measures at local Conservative MPPs’ offices or other locations in your community and invite the media to come out to cover them.

The Ford government is trying to push through new laws next week in the midst of a pandemic that would:

  • Dismantle public governance & oversight for home care
  • Privatize home & community care
  • Expand private hospitals
  • Bring private home care into public hospitals, and
  • Stifle lawsuits against private corporations (including private long-term care corporations) and the government.

Organized by ontariohealthcoalition.ca.
