This is one of the most critical elections for us in decades, with an economic recovery to focus on as well as climate action and deep inequality. It’s definitely time to strike a very different path than the one we were on when the pandemic began.
We need a recovery that takes bold steps to address these crises, and invests in building a better future for everyone, which will require everyone to contribute their fair share towards our collective future, particularly those who have amassed incredible wealth. Taxes are the fair and democratic path to achieve this.

Dear Neighbours, Canada Post has decided to close operations at 1117 Queen Street West (Postal Station C) and sell the building to the highest bidder. We believe the building should stay in public hands, for public use. It should not be sold and used only for private interests. The building has served the public since 1902! A group of local WQW residents have called upon the Federal Government to immediately halt the sale of 1117 Queen Street West and they ask that you join them in this effort! If you wish to show your support please sign their petition, here: http://chng.it/gVY9ffy2TK
