ACORN VOTES: Federal Election 2021
Resource Type: Workers Rights
Posted on August 9, 2021
The pandemic has exposed and entrenched the deep inequities in Canada. Job loss during the pandemic hit lowest wage workers the hardest and the need for government to provide and expand basic services and programs was needed and understood like no other time in this generation. It is now time for us to rebuild, putting people before profits. With the federal election around the corner, ACORN members in 24 of the lowest income neighbourhoods across the country met, discussed and developed ACORN’s National Platform. The priorities of affordable housing, internet for all, modernizing EI and taxing the rich are what ACORN members need to see for a just and equitable recovery for Canada.
