Dear Councillor [Name],
Toronto’s budget is about our city’s priorities.
For too long, shelters, affordable housing, mental health, public transit, and social services have been starved of the funding they need.
I am writing to call on you to vote for a budget that reflects the needs of Torontonians.
The city’s upcoming budget is a chance to invest in what matters most.
I know that the city is working to fix a deficit, and choices need to be made. I am asking you to choose to invest in the most important services for real community safety.
- Shelters and deeply affordable housing
- Mental health and new mental health first responder services
- Public transit and climate action
- Social services such as public health, recreational programming, and child care
I know that well-funded interests are also pushing you for funding increases. But I am hopeful that you can listen to Torontonians over special interests. Fund our communities, and deliver a budget that everyone in our city can be proud of.
