Last Thursday, ACORN members joined MPP Jagmeet Singh at Queen’s Park to announce the next step in our important campaign to regulate the predatory remittance industry. He tabled a historic bill that afternoon that would regulate the industry – introducing transparent fee structures for the first time, a cap on the total fees at 5% of money sent, and strong enforcement mechanisms.
You can sign the petition here.
ACORN members are going to keep working hard to build this campaign. They’ll be speaking to their neighbors and getting them signed on, they’ll be doing turn out for meetings and actions, and they’ll be planning. One of the most important tasks right now for ACORN’s members and supporters across Ontario is letting MPPs know that they should vote for remittance justice. Call your MPP now - you can find their contact information here.
To get involved, to let us know weather your MPP supports remittance justice, or to get more information, contact the closest ACORN office.
