Pc Policies: Activist Toolkit and Mpps

pc policies: While Ontarians were gearing up to fight the good fight,'s Activist Toolkit launched the Ontario Fightback series to amplify the efforts of activists standing up against destructive PC policies and to help connect us to progressive MPPs who will fight with us, according to Rabble. The first part of the Ontario Fightback series involved reaching out to the new progressive MPPs with three main questions why they ran, what they heard at the doors, and how we can help them stand up for us. But we were also heartened by the fact that an amazing set of progressive MPPs were headed to Queen's Park. Right before the new government took power, on June 29, we published part one with the first set of responses from France G linas Nickel Belt Peter Tabuns Toronto Danforth Laura Mae Lindo Kitchener Centre Terence Kernaghan London North Centre Mike Schreiner Guelph and Chris Glover Spadina Fort-York . We continued to receive amazing responses from progressive MPPs -- so many that we had to publish a second part!
