TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO
Whereas most people in Ontario who receive social assistance are being forced to survive on as little as $650 a month;
Whereas affordable, subsidized rent geared to income housing is inaccessible to most people, with wait lists of many years;
Whereas clients need to eat, as well as pay their rent, and since clients would still have to dip into their Basic Needs Allowance to cover rent because even doubling the Shelter Allowances still won't cover all of the rent at today's prices;
We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario call on the Premier of Ontario to double the Ontario Disability Support Program and Ontario Works rates.
