Affordable Housing, Childcare, TTC have your say

An important community meeting is going to be held here at LAMP Saturday December 9th from noon to 3 pm on the upcoming Toronto budget. Now is the time to get people talking about affordable housing, TTC and transit, employment, childcare, recreation etc. Please help us to get people involved in issues that impact their lives. Childcare and TTC is available we just need to know how many children and their ages. Lunch will be served to start. Time to make sure the issues that are important to meeting peoples’ needs are funded like the poverty reduction strategy and affordable housing.
 
·         110, 000 need affordable housing
·         1 in 4 children live in poverty
·         Lower TTC fares for low income riders
·         Dental Care for 3000 seniors
 
It would mean another 3 dollars a week in property taxes, but it’s worth it.
