Don’t be afraid to demand what we want!


SEIZE THE TIME! Now is the time for us all to take our own advice and act.

We know what we need and we know what we want. Let’s ask for it. Without apology or permission.

Let’s make a start with this list.

A national rent freeze and moratorium on all home evictions, foreclosures and utility shutoffs.

A freeze on the application of interest, and demand to pay interest, on all personal credit.

Federal government control over the production and delivery of all personal protection equipment.

Federal government to assure maximum protection for the health of all frontline and essential services workers, in both the public and private sector.

Special support for the financial security of our seniors with a bump up in benefits to include, but not be limited to, CPP and OAS payments and the allowance for other payments necessary to make up for falling values in RRSP holdings.

An investigation into the state of long-term care in every province, with recommendations on the necessary first steps for creating mandatory national standards for long-term care in every province.
