We Are Ontario.ca is a labour and community-based campaign launched by the Ontario Common Front – a coalition of over 90 community groups and labour unions that represent millions of Ontarians. Together, we represent the majority of Ontarians and who oppose government attempts to balance their budgets on the back’s of poor and middle class Ontarians.
We believe that the shameful income gap between the rich and the rest of us is widening daily and that cuts to jobs and services will hurt every Ontario family, especially those who are already struggling. Our governments should be investing in important public services, like education, health care, child care and social assistance. These services provide support to families, build our communities and help us get back on our feet.
Instead of making harmful cuts that will hurt people, we believe that our governments should ask banks and corporations to pay their fair share. After all, corporate tax cuts and loopholes deprive the Ontario budget of billions of dollars each year, while these measures have failed to deliver on promises of greater corporate investments in jobs or our economy.
We have come together to tell Premier McGuinty that you can’t cut your way to prosperity.
