To Rob Ford and the Toronto City Councillors,
We, the residents and the workers of Toronto Community
Housing Corporation (TCHC), and their supporters, are
demanding a halt to the privatization the TCHC.
Privatization of the TCHC would place our community in
the hands of big business profiteers who would likely
increase rent, neglect their obligations to repairs and layoff
maintenance staff as to increase their profits. Furthermore,
privatization can mean the widespread destruction of our
housing to build condo or other commercial enterprises.
Canadians have a right to affordable and quality housing.
This means that beyond just preventing privatizations, we
need a massive increase in funding to public housing. We
must end repair backlogs, decrease rent rates, provide
adequate subsidies to those in need and massively expand
the TCHC. The expansion of housing would provide
tremendous employment, particularly for local youth, and
must be paid at union wages.
In light of the recent scandal, we believe that TCHC
tenants are best able to end corruption or any abuses of
power thought direct democratic control. No to corporate
ownership! For democratic tenants control of the TCHC!
Rob Ford is planning to remove the 5 cents policy for plastic bags. It's been proven that this policy has greatly reduced the plastic bag consumption, which helps the environment of the city.
It has been a great success, and we at St. Henry Catholic School do not believe that Rob Ford should remove this policy.
Bike Lanes are amazing transportation routes, and a way to burn carbs! This is our way of saying "WE ARE GREEN!"
We have to support! Rob Ford will take the bike lane plan to a minimum! Hurry, Sign!
