Help us educate and mobilize Torontonians to protect our public services this municipal election. Our new fact sheets include sample questions you can ask your candidate. They are great to share with users of public services, as well as public service workers.

At the free event’s town hall meeting, residents and public sector workers are expected share personal stories describing their experience with public services — both as a place of employment, and as a provider of critical services.
MEDIA ADVISORY – For immediate release: Tuesday July 20, 2010
Community groups are hosting a community BBQ and town hall meeting to encourage residents to protect public services in the lead up to Toronto’s municipal elections.
Our Public Services for All campaign is encouraging Torontonians to take action to ensure our governments do not succumb to pressure to sell off or degrade our valuable public services. We must strengthen Toronto’s social foundation, not dismantle it.
Community barbecue also a ‘town hall’ session.
