Are you concerned with provincial pandemic measures taken
by the Ford government?

 

Voting against paid sick days in Bill 239 means that many employees have to continue to work to pay the bills even when they have been exposed to COVID. Cases skyrocket and hospitals including two from University Health Network have had to install tents outside the emergency room areas. Around 90% of low-income workers don't have access to paid sick leave.

 

They are the workers who care for our seniors, prepare our food, and package our online orders — and the pandemic taught us they are essential. They are also disproportionately women, Black, Indigenous and other racialized workers. But when they get sick, they have to make the impossible decision to go to work and risk spreading the virus or stay home and struggle to put food on the table. Read More


On Monday, April 26, 2021 - 55 Conservative MPPs voted NO again to giving Ontarians paid sick days
including Etobicoke Centre MPP, Kinga Surma.
 

 

Kinga Surma also voted no to capping classes at 15 with the Minister of Education, Stephen Lecce.  A Toronto Star article uncovered internal government documents showing how Ontario ‘watered down’ its strategies to keep COVID-19 out of classrooms. Read more

 

Are your views being represented? Voice your concerns and contact Kinga Surma MPP in Etobicoke Centre at 416-234-2800 or kinga.surma@pc.ola.org. If you reside outside of Etobicoke Centre, contact your local MPP.

 

You can also contact Premier Doug Ford if you are not getting a response from your MPP or to also share your concerns about paid sick days, shutting down the real sites of transmission, vaccine distribution or any other concerns 416-325-1941 or premier@ontario.ca.
