“The Raise the Rates Campaign is calling on local communities to challenge MPPs during the week of May 18. MPPs will be in their constituency offices that week, making it an ideal time to challenge the austerity and growing poverty being imposed in the province. The Liberals have long presented themselves as a kinder alternative to the Tories, but in reality are imposing a range of cuts on poor people and communities. In a recent announcement, the province cynically spun a reduced commitment to anti-homelessness initiatives as an infusion of new cash. This highlights the stealthy and misleading Liberal approach we describe as “invisible austerity.” It’s time to stop the invisible austerity.” From the CUPE Ontario web site.
