Tuesday, May 7, I hosted a Town Hall on the impacts of the
Provincial Cuts to Toronto Public Health. Thank you to everyone who
came out! Mayor John Tory, Chair of the
Board of Health Joe Cressy and Councillor Josh Matlow were all in
attendance and spoke passionately about the massive Provincial
Cuts ✂️ to
Toronto Public Health. Medical Officer of Health, Dr.
Eileen de Villa, also presented an in-depth
look about how these Provincial Cuts will damage so many vital
programs for years to come.
We had a fantastic turnout of concerned residents
who asked necessary and thoughtful questions. Many of you
were eager to learn of ways you could continue to push back and
ensure your voice was heard.
