Message from the Toronto and York Region Labour Council
Sid Ryan, President of the Ontario Federation of Labour
Premier McGuinty put banker Don Drummond in charge of recommending nearly 400 cuts to jobs and public services in Ontario. At a time when Ontarians are in desperate need of economic recovery, these cuts will jeopardize every aspect of society: from health care to full-day kindergarten to pensions.
No public service is safe. However, in McGuinty’s reckless plan to balance Ontario’s books by putting more people out of work and destroying the social safety net, he refuses to roll-back corporate tax cuts that are starving the province of billions of dollars that could be better used to create new jobs and help tens of thousands of struggling Ontario families to get back on their feet.
Ontarians from all sectors of society must come together to tell Premier McGuinty that he cannot cut his way to economic prosperity. Help to mobilize your members, your families and your communities to stop the cuts and put Ontario on the road to economic recovery.
