This May Day we demand change
STOP BILL C-51
Stephen Harper is trying to pass a new “secret police” law that would give reckless and unnecessary powers to spy agencies with little oversight or accountability. We say no to this brutal police state bill!
RAISE MINIMUM WAGE TO $15
Ontario’s minimum wage was frozen in March 2010, and inflation has lowered earnings from minimum wage to 19% below the poverty line. Every worker in Canada deserves a living wage, indexed with the cost of living.
END STUDENT DEBT- FREE TUITION NOW
Quebec students took a stand for fair tuition and as a result still have the lowest tuition fees in Canada. Education should be accessible to everyone, no matter their financial situation. Post-secondary education is needed for a modern world. A fight to end student debt and for free tuition is a fight we can win.
STOP ENERGY EAST! STOP THE TAR SANDS!
TransCanada plans to send 130 million litres a day of diluted tar sands bitumen through the city of Ottawa; a pipeline called Energy East. A single spill of bitumen, a thick black mixture that doesn’t float on water, would devastate aquifers and poison our city’s water supply.
