Provincial and Federal Budgets Deliver Austerity to Struggling Communities

Posted on 03. Apr, 2012 by in SPT News

The federal and provincial budgets are giving a one-two punch to struggling communities across Ontario.  The Alliance for a Poverty-Free Toronto will be hosting a community discussion, “Government Austerity: What does it mean to us? The community speaks back!” on Thursday, April 5 to take a deeper look at these budgets and their implications for residents across Toronto.  Please join us on April 5 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Rexdale Community Health Centre, 8 Taber Road in Etobicoke.  For more information, contact Sheena at or (416) 231-5499.
