EXPAND OUR SERVICES! STOP THE CUTS!

Mayor Rob Ford and his supporters at City Hall plan to make serious cuts to all aspects of city services and the workers who provide them. Already every City department (except the Police) has been ordered to cut their 2012 budget by 10%. Community centres are now charging fees for previously free programs like family swim. The TTC has been forced to reduce service frequency on already packed routes. Libraries are planning to reduce hours. Ford is so determined to destroy good, public jobs that as early as January, we could see a lock out of city workers. And that is only a small sample of what’s to come, unless we work together to Stop the Cuts!

Join residents in Davenport-Perth to demand that city programs, services and jobs be saved.

COME TO THE LIBRARY! RAISE YOUR VOICE!
