580 CFRA: Ottawa ACORN Members Rally Outside McGuinty’s Constituency Office

Posted April 9, 2012

Members of the activist group ACORN [Canada] rallied against a freeze of ODSP and Ontario Works payments outside of Premier Dalton McGuinty’s constituency office in Ottawa South on Friday.

The freeze was announced in Tuesday’s provincial budget.

Michelle Walrond believes the document hurts people who are already struggling.

“We are not important to Dalton McGuinty,” Walrond tells CFRA. “Basically, he’s told us the modern day equivalent of ‘Let them eat cake.’ He’s telling us, ‘Tighten your belt,’ assuming that everybody can afford a belt.”

Warland adds she was further disappointed by the jobs cuts included in the federal budget, which she says benefits businesses and leaves out ordinary citizens.
