Allow Municipalities to set minimum wage.

https://www.fraserinstitute.org/studies/uneven-recovery-much-of-ontario-still-hasnt-fully-recovered-from-the-2008-recession

As can be seen by the Fraser Institute urban areas haven't recovered from the 2008 recession. This might have to do with the cost of minimum wage. The cost of living in Toronto is not the same as Kitchener. Neither is it the same in Windsor nor Owen Sound. Smaller business in small towns cannot... more »

Consolfate Lower Tier and Upper Tier Goverments

Currently in Ontario most municipalities are comprised of a local or lower tier goverment and a Regional/County or Upper Teir goverment with each goverment providing services to citizens. Combining them into one single teir, done properly should bring most cost effective services and less overall goverment.

CLIMATE CHANGE/GLOBAL WARMING

Your program to fight climate change is full of well thought out ideas and programs. This issue is vital to all Ontarians though certain special interest corporations and others will push back and deny than man has had any influence. Liberals really need to sell the importance of this issue. If you can get some high profile third party as good as Al Gore or David Suzuki onside to stand with you, you can win the election... more »

Extend the GO Train Service Line from Milton to Cambridge

The highway 401 corridor across the Cambridge area has become one of the most dangerous sections of the highway in Ontario. The TransCanada highway has been closed several times in recent months due to serious accidents. This is very dangerous for our citizens of this province and has a significant negative impact on our economy. An expanded two way GO Rail Service through Toronto, Mississauga and Cambridge would significantly... more »

More Go Transit for 'Reverse Commuters" - we have the trains and the lines.

Increase the number of trips from Toronto to outlying suburbs (to Brampton for example) in the early morning. Outbound trips are not scheduled at times to encourage reverse commuters to take transit.There are a LOT of REVERSE COMMUTERS - get us on board by scheduling and marketing early morning outbound trips from Toronto

Keep it in the community

I believe any not for profit services should build there own community before moving to another. Community doors should be free to access for any activity, service or event. Less entrepreneurs and students are taking advantage of connecting with their neighbors because of high cost for the use of community centers. These centers should be free access with a percentage based on earning. Many have great ideas however they... more »

Long-term Care Facilities

The government must take a greater role in providing nursing home and other long-term care facilities for needy seniors. Why has this aspect of health care been allocated to the private sector? Currently too many hospital beds are being occupied by persons who don't need that level of care, but there is a shortage of beds in NH & LTC facilities.

It enables travelers to see where the snow plows are located at any given time during the winter season on provincial highways. The website also provides access to traffic cameras in fixed locations and on some of the vehicles. It is a valuable resource to enhance safety on our roads,

Replace natural gas

Ontario presently ignores the upstream GHG emissions from the natural gas that it imports and uses, particularly from the methane that is released by fracking (which has a very high GWP). If that GHG were included then Ontario would have one of the world's worst records for GHG emissions. With the pending closure of 8 of the province's nuclear power reactors, to be replaced by gas-fired generators, this problem will soon... more »

Create incinerators for garbage and end land fills

The practice of collecting garbage and trucking it to land fill sites, shipping to other countries, dumping in the ocean, etc needs to be stopped. Incinerator’s are used in Europe for garbage and the energy collected is used. This works well and would work well in Canada. We have to start taking care of the earth, our children deserve this.

I would like to the suggest that companies are to give employees. the option to be paid on a weekly basis.
Many families are suffering because they have to wait, for a bi-weekly or bi-monthly check.
We should be able to receive money earned, on a weekly basis so our families can survive. Let us earn interest on our earned wages and not have to use our high interest credit cards or high fee pay day loans, for basic... more »

Build the Highway 400-404 Link

South Simcoe County and northern York Region are rapidly growing, and traffic problems are only getting worse. We need to design, fund and build the long-awaited Highway 400-404 Link, formerly called the Bradford Bypass. This 16-kilometre highway would connect the Highway 404 extension north of Queensville Sideroad in East Gwillimbury to Highway 400 north of the 8th Line in Bradford.

Single-occupant vehicles in rush hour

Mandate that all transit routes that carry above 10,000 people per day operate in a dedicated right-of-way. The plague of single occupant vehicles is real, and is crippling our cities.The plague of single occupant vehicles is the single biggest contributor to: terribly slow commutes, congestion, pollution, waste of space.
