Ontario Seeking Public Input on Plan to Help People Get Ahead in Changing Economy
Premier Kathleen Wynne is inviting people to a town hall meeting to share their ideas about the government’s plan to create a fairer, better Ontario for all.
The Premier’s Town Hall will take place at the Concert Hall at 888 Yonge St., formerly the Masonic Temple, in Toronto on Monday, November 20 and will be moderated by Jane Taber, Vice-President of Public Affairs for NATIONAL Public Relations and former political reporter for The Globe and Mail. The Town Hall is free admission and open to anyone who wants to share their ideas on education, health care, job security, housing and other issues that matter most to them, their families and people across the province.
General admission seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Concert Hall. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the Premier’s Town Hall beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Ontario’s plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.
“We can always make the world fairer. We can always do better. That’s what drives me. When people have more opportunity, our communities grow stronger — and so does our province. Our plan for a fairer, better Ontario is about continuing to grow our economy and helping more people get ahead. I am looking forward to hearing from you — the people of Ontario — about your ideas to create more fairness and opportunity in people’s lives.” — Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario
