Wayne Gates MPP for Niagara Falls, Fort Erie & Niagara-on-the-Lake

Government of Ontario

Stop Ford's Cuts



Whereas, since the election of the Ford government in June of 2018, the province of Ontario has witnessed repeated cuts to our core public services; and


Whereas, this government has made the callous decision to cut 10,000 teachers from our classrooms, severely undermining the quality of education in the province; and


Whereas, this government continues to make cuts to our healthcare system and ignore the issue of hallway medicine, including allowing a nearly 40 hour average wait time at our Niagara Falls hospital;


Whereas, the Ford government has cut funding for Indigenous affairs, environmental protection, arts and culture, legal aid, social assistance and affordable housing;


And Whereas, the Ford government gave a 14% wage increase to their top staff;


Therefore, we the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows: That the Ford government immediately reverse their callous cuts and start investing in the people of Ontario, not giving wage increases to friends in government and handouts to big business.
