UFCW Canada activists join thousands of Ontarians in sending a message to Premier Ford that ‘Enough is Enough’

Queen’s Park, Ont. –  Activists from all walks of life joined together in a display of unity and solidarity on the one-year anniversary of Doug Ford’s election to the Premier’s office with a resounding call to action that ‘Enough is Enough.’

Answering the call made by the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL), community, labour, and housing activists took to the streets to send a message of defiance and resilience that could not be ignored. When it comes to rising costs, affordability, low wages, and a healthcare system in crisis, indeed ‘Enough is Enough.’

The ambitious call to action galvanized the support of Ontarians across the province to stand up and have their voices heard as the housing, healthcare, and affordability crisis intensifies in communities large and small. From Hamilton to North Bay over 10,000 activists came out to have their voices heard from a Premier’s office that seems intent on ignoring the growing problem.

UFCW Canada activists mobilized supporters in Toronto, ground zero of the rally which began at Nathan Philips Square, and took the streets towards the Provincial legislature. Mayoral hopeful Olivia Chow was on hand to greet supporters alongside OFL President Patty Coates who roused activists with an impassioned speech about the battle lines being drawn when it comes to the issues plaguing workers across Ontario.
