Last month Toronto ACORN members stood up for affordable housing, childcare & environmental stewardship against proposed cuts from the Mayor’s office. The proposed cuts stem from the core service review performed by KPMG at the request of the Mayor’s office. That review identified a number of city services that Toronto ACORN members depend for possibly sweeping cuts.
With these cuts as a backdrop, members responded with deputations to four different committees over two weeks - speaking passionately to the issues and the effects the cuts would have on working family communities. Toronto ACORN will continue to be active in the fight to protect services needed by the city's most vulnerable as we struggle through this battle at city hall.
