Food Security

You may have recently read in the news about Walmart throwing out perfectly good/edible food because they couldn't sell it... or some other reason that doesn't make sense. Laws should force companies, farmers, or anyone creating and/or distributing food, to prevent food waste. These "near due dates" foods should be sent to food banks, instead of being thrown away. Or, to find a way to have them create pickup times at... more »

INVEST IN PARAMEDICS & AMBULANCE SYSTEM

Why not adjust budgets to better address the needs of emergency services? Lack of ambulance coverage is occurring all over the province. Wait times are increasing and response times are being affected. We need more ambulances on the road and funding for community paramedicine programs to help alleviate the strain on hospitals. Ambulance Paramedics are fundamental to saving lives. The government’s stated goal is to “improve... more »

Increase funding for dental care

The current publicly funded dental care programs need to be more robust with basic, denture care and preventive dental care covered in the OW Adult program. Dental programs should pay the providers enough to at least cover expenses. Investing in properly funded dental programs with essential services covered will improve oral health, decrease barriers to dental care, and decrease health care spending on costly ER visits... more »

Inclusive and Just Society

End Ontario's Breed Ban. Remove all Breed Specific Language in the Ontario Dog Owner's Liability Act.

Ontarian's want fair, just and effective legislation when it comes to our animals. Discriminating and profiling dogs based only on appearance is draconian at best and does not decrease dog bites nor promote public safety. The current ban was pushed forward against all professional advice and evidence shows breed bans do not work. Thousands of good family dogs have been victimized. Thousands of responsible dog owners... more »

Affordable Housing

Current land-use polices, namely “Places To Grow Act”, enacted more than 10 years ago, is outdated and based on old environmental philosophy - concocted during early 1990s - that’s not compatible with the state of the technology available to us at the present (e.g. Electric Cars, Solar Roofs, etc.). According to the current Ontario Government Climate Change Action Plan, housing and transportation amount to about 55% of... more »

Redirect EQAO Testing Funds

It is time to get rid of this destructive vestige of the Harris government of the late 1990s. It was implemented to: a) fool Ontarians into thinking that the government was "doing something to improve education". This is a red herring. A one day test does not improve education. In fact, this type of standardized testing has caused significant harm over the last two decades. b) follow the path that had been set in... more »

Put a cap on post-secondary education fee

There should be limit on how much education can cost - all these post-secondary educational organizations operate as non-for-profit, limit the fee in order for them to remain non-for-profit, if they need to raise the cost of program, it should be explained, e.g. engineering probably needs access to special equipment.

Tax educational organization as for-profit if fees exceed cost + certain percentage.

CPR & AED Training in Schools

CPR training should be mandatory and AED's should be readily available and required in all schools. In the case of cardiac arrest, every second counts. It's fatal if no quick actions are taken within minutes. There's power in community—bystanders need to be ready to help save lives. Everyone should be trained to give effective chest compressions and know how to use an AED. About 60 per cent of cardiac arrests happen... more »

Cap MPP's Salary at $100K

Salaries for ALL MPP's should be capped at $100,000. If it's really about serving the people, not wasting money, and helping the "middle class", then why make more than what any single "middle class" person? As well, ALL MP's should have their finances disclosures.

Free Parking at Ontario Hospitals

The Ontario Liberal Party should commit to making parking at all Ontario hospitals free of charge for patients, visitors and staff. Parking charges at Ontario hospitals cost on average $2.50 for each half an hour and $15 per day. I believe that this places an unfair and unnecessary burden on families, patients and even hospital staff who do not always have their parking validated as employees of the hospital. This is... 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. This is a vital piece of infrastructure... more »

Basic Dental Coverage for Youth and Seniors

The Ontario Liberals should cover basic dental care (i.e., annual cleaning, X-rays, fillings, braces, wisdom teeth extractions, ect.) for all Ontarians under the age of 24 years and over the age of 65 years. Most youths end up needing their wisdom teeth removed and that surgery alone costs approximately $1,000. Likewise braces and fillings can cost thousands of dollars. This can place a very heavy burden on low income... more »
