Toronto has been shocked by Premier Doug Ford’s move to slash Toronto City Council from 47 to 25 councillors in the middle of a municipal election, without any notice or consultation. Even now, Bill 5 is working its way to a third reading at the Ontario Legislature and could be law within weeks.
Our downtown neighbourhoods have been intensifying at unprecedented rates, without the investments needed to serve a growing population and address the crises before us. Now Doug Ford is mandating that Torontonians have less representation and less access to City Hall. Toronto deserves better and now is the time to meet and discuss what happens next.
Join your local representatives - Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam, TDSB Trustee Chris Moise, and MPP Suze Morrison - for a town hall on Bill 5 and how we fight for Toronto’s democracy.
PLEASE NOTE: There is limited capacity in the space booked at the 519. If that capacity is reached unfortunately we will have to start turning people away. To be sure that you are able to participate in the event please arrive early! We will also be live streaming the event on the Kristyn Wong-Tam facebook page if you are not able to make it out in person.
