ProudPolitics' Statement on Ontario proposal to reduce Toronto City Council seats in half, mid-campaign

 

ProudPolitics strongly opposes the announcement by the Premier of Ontario to unilaterally reduce the number of Toronto City Council seats in half: without consultation and in the middle of an election campaign. Candidates across the City of Toronto, many of whom are grassroots, LGBTIQ+ and or from other under-represented communities, have already formed campaigns. They have expended time, money, and energy to ensure that constituents are aware of who they are, and about their proposals and ideas to govern Toronto. The premier’s proposal to gerrymander seats will not only unfairly upend these campaigns, but also undermine and subvert local representation and the democratic process.

It's time to have your voice be heard. Sign the petition by our friends at Progress Toronto: https://www.progresstoronto.ca/stopford.
