Thank you!

On 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. 

  • Visit to sign their petition and learn about other ways you can get involved
  • Please write and call to your local MPP, urge them to speak to the Minister of Health and request that funding be restored to these most vital public health services
  • Tell your families, neighbours and friends about the importance of standing up and speaking out against these cuts. Get them involved because the more people speaking out, the more effective we will be
  • Bring the issue to any community groups in your area. Resident associations, church groups, social groups, etc. can all be strong advocates and offer an organizational opportunity to spread this important message
