Hamilton ACORN & Labour Allies fight back against Provincial Budget's Deep Cuts

Posted April 12, 2019

Hamilton Ontario - Early this morning ACORN in solidarity with Hamilton & District Labour Council gathered outside the Scottish Rite in downtown Hamilton to protest the deep cuts that came out of the Ford Government's Provincial Budget yesterday.
 
Inside the Scottish Rite, the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce, Conservative politicians, landlords, gentrifers, Hamilton City Councillors & the Mayor were having breakfast with MPP Peter Bethlenfalvy, President of the Treasury Board.
 
On the outside, around 40 ACORN members, Labour, teachers, and health care advocates gave speeches and chanted about the cuts to social assistance, wages, education, housing and the healthcare system. 
 
Today's rally made one thing very clear, Ford's budget isn't for OUR people and ACORN will continue to fight for low to moderate incomes families to have a voice.
