Save the Community Start-Up, Raise the Rates Now!
10:00 AM: Walk-in Clinic: Find out about or apply for Community Start Up, join us at the Church of the Holy Trinity, 10 Trinity Square (west of the Eaton Centre, south of Dundas)
12.00 Noon: Meal and Rally @ Toronto City Hall Square (Bay/Queen):
March on the Provincial Government to Deliver all Applications Collected that Day
A Province wide campaign is being built to save the CSUMB and, in Toronto, OCAP is looking to contribute to this on October 17 with a mass application for the benefit that will also demand the cutback be reversed. We will hold a mass clinic to make people aware of how they can apply for CSUMB and we will fill in application forms for all those who wish to obtain it. Then, we will rally together and march on the Government to put in these applications and many more from across Ontario.
If you want to help build this event or learn how you and others in your community can receive the CSUMB, give us a call today. More than anything, come out on October 17 and help us stop McGuinty from getting away with his plans to put people on the streets. Save the Community Start Up Benefit, Raise the Rates NOW!
**Parkdale Meet-Up: 9:30am @PARC drop-in (1499 Queen St. West), tokens provided**
