Ontario Election: October 6, 2011

August 30, 2011

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

On October 6, the people of Ontario will go to the polls to choose their next provincial government.

This decision is crucial. Ontarians will be making a choice that could set our province on a starkly different economic and social path for years, even decades, to come.

Workers have a lot on the line with this election, particularly if Tim Hudak's Conservatives form the next government. This could usher in an era similar to what the province experienced during the Mike Harris years of the late 1990s and early 2000. Think major cuts to education and health care, diminishing workers' rights, rapidly growing poverty, an end to rent control, slashing welfare rates and poison water.

Let's not go back there!

We want to make improvements with the next government, not go backward.

The time to get engaged and get involved is now. 

Watch CAW President Ken Lewenza's speech about why this election is important!
