Ford Fightback: More Homes More Choice or No Homes No Choice!

Posted 13 September 2019
On 12th September, ACORN members and its allies marched across the province (Hamilton, Ottawa and Toronto) to demand Ford Stop dismantling the housing sector.
The Ford Government is claiming to provide more homes, more choice to the people of Ontario. However, all of the recent policy and legislative changes around housing are geared to increasing the profits of developers, with none to protect tenants or making housing more affordable for tenants.
