Thursday September 26:On November 1 Doug Ford’s government will eliminate food and clothing allowance for 32 000 of Ontario’s poorest children. The cut is a result of the cancellation of the Transition Child Benefit which provides parents on social assistance up to $230 per month per child to take care of their kids. For a single parent with two kids on Ontario Works the cut represents a loss of 30% of their already sub-poverty income.Speaker: Jackie Esmonde Income Security Advocacy Centre

The Ford government revealed its first budget on April 11. It is bad news for the people. But the populist Premiere knows that bad news must be delivered with a smile and confusing rhetoric. So join us to make sense of how the budget will impact our lives from education to healthcare to social assistance and more. Then let\'s figure out how to build a resistance movement that can become Dougie\'s worst nightmare.
