Ontario-Wide Raise the Rates Week of Action!

The Raise the Rates Campaign is calling on local communities to challenge MPPs during the week of May 18. During that week, they will be in their constituency offices and this is an ideal time to challenge the austerity and growing poverty that is being imposed in this Province.

Please find below a schedule of events across Ontario and come out to any events in your area! Raise the rates now!
