  • Make National Truth and Reconciliation Day a Stat


    Whereas over the past year, the graves of more than 1,300 Indigenous children have been discovered at former residential school sites. We mourned together, grieved together, and faced the truth together: that all Indigenous Peoples living in Canada are survivors of Canada’s tools of genocide.

    Whereas declaring September 30 the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is one of the 94 calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

    Whereas making September 30th a provincial statutory holiday is a way to keep this work on the front burner, to convey the gravity of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, and to make sure the precious children that were taken from their parents, their families, their communities are never, ever forgotten.

    Therefore, we the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows:

    Ontario should make September 30th, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a statutory day off.

    No COVID evictions


    No one should be forced out of their home in the middle of the pandemic. 

    COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of having a safe, secure place to call home. 

    Right now thousands of tenants are unable to pay their rent and are about to be evicted. Many have nowhere to go. They are on the verge of becoming homeless - in winter, in the middle of the pandemic. 

    Lives are at risk. 

    On February 16th my bill to Stop to COVID evictions will be debated in the legislature. 

    We need the Provincial government to take action on this important issue and pass the bill as soon as possible. 

    Help us organize to Stop COVID evictions:

    1. Call and email the Premier and the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. Ask them to stop COVID evictions. 

    Premier Doug Ford

    Hon. Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing

    2. Tell your friends and family to contact their local MPP and ask them to put pressure on the Premier to sign an emergency order to ban COVID evictions today. 

    Find your local MPP Here. 

    3. Sign the petition below to call on the provincial government to reinstate the moratorium on evictions and prohibit evictions for the nonpayment of rent for the period of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    WHEREAS renters across Ontario are currently having a hard time paying rent and other bills, especially if they have lost their income during the Covid-19 pandemic;

    WHEREAS rent across Ontario is already too high and many families are barely managing to live month-to-month; shelters in communities across Ontario are full and with homelessness already a crisis;

    WHEREAS the rights of tenants are already limited, and the Ontario Landlord & Tenant Board is expediting eviction hearings without consideration to the public health consequence of pushing tenants out of their homes in the middle of pandemic; 


    That, in the opinion of this House, the provincial government should immediately take additional steps to help protect residential tenants by reinstating the temporary moratorium on residential evictions until Ontario has entered a post-pandemic recovery period and by prohibiting evictions for nonpayment of rent for the period of the COVID-19 pandemic.
