Municipalities need help

Municipal workers are on the frontlines going flat out to deliver the public services that keep us safe during COVID-19. But responding to this pandemic has left municipal governments in financial crisis. Their revenues have collapsed and unanticipated costs are soaring. Without financial help, municipalities will be forced to cut the vital local services our families and communities rely upon…

Tell Lululemon and YM Group Inc. to protect garment workers from wage theft!

As shown in the Steelworkers Humanity Fund’s report “Not Even the Bare Minimum,” when the COVID-19 crisis hit, many global brands cancelled orders without consideration for workers in their supply chains. Those garment workers were paid poverty wages before the crisis and had no savings to draw upon when they were laid off, as they often did not receive their…

Push back – call your MP

Word on Parliament Hill has it that the insurance industry is lobbying hard. It wants the federal government to cover the insurance of recently laid off workers. That would be instead of adopting universal, single-payer pharmacare. It’s up to us to make sure MPs know that’s just not on. Call your MP using this simple tool. We’ve got talking points…

Call the banks now

Tell your bank that it is in times of a crisis; true leaders step up and take action to support those who support them. Millions of Canadians have lost their primary source of income. This means families are struggling to pay rent, the mortgage, monthly bills, put food on the table and get the medication they need. In turn, many…

Write to a local or national publication

We can keep up the pressure by writing a letter to the editor. Here’s a nifty tool that allows you to add your own story and hit send to a local or national publication.

Protect Public Institutions, protect Laurentian University!

Education programs and good jobs should never be put at risk. We must protect public institutions from being underfunded and filing for bankruptcy. This devastates faculty, staff, students, families and communities. Send a letter to the Prime Minister. Urge him to ensure that no other publicly funded institutions follow in the footsteps of Laurentian University. Tell the Prime Minister to amend the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement…

Pharmacare: Taking care of business

In a recent survey by Ekos Research, 8 in 10 business owners agreed with the following statement: “Prescription drugs should be covered as part of our public health care system, the same way that hospitals and doctors are covered.” A strong majority of business owners support universal pharmacare, just like the majority of Canadians. For years, business owners have been…

Justice for First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples is long overdue

The discovery of 215 children in an unmarked burial site in Kamloops has reminded us all about the horrors of the residential school system. All across Canada, First Nations, Inuit and Métis (FNIM) peoples continue to experience the devastating impacts and traumatic legacy of colonialism, violence and systemic racism. It’s time for everyone in Canada to take an active role…

If not now, when?

Even before this pandemic, 1 in 4 Canadians had inadequate drug coverage or none at all. Today, mass layoffs have left millions of more Canadians without workplace drug benefits.  This means many people will have to stretch their medications or skip them all together. Tell the Prime Minister and your Premier it’s time for universal, single-payer pharmacare.

Urgent action on racism

Canadians are fed up with systemic anti-Black racism and other forms of discrimination in our communities. The federal government needs to step up by fulfilling its election promise to double funding for anti-racism strategies. It’s time for our governments to confront racism, not just talk about it.

Tell the banks – enough is enough

Enough is enough. The Bank of Canada has just reduced its lending rate to the big banks to a historically low level. The government and Canadians expected this to lead to debt relief for average people. Yet the banks refuse to pass these savings onto Canadian families. Join us and tell the big banks to stop gouging Canadians and lower…

Tell your bank. Send a tweet now.

We’re all making sacrifices to get through this challenging time – everyone except Canada’s big banks. Canadians pay some of the highest rates in the entire world, often at about 20% or even higher. Year after year, the big banks make billions in profits off the backs of working Canadians. They turn around and pay their CEOs huge bonuses with…
