Ontario Seeking Public Input on Plan to Help People Get Ahead in Changing Economy
Premier Kathleen Wynne is inviting the public to share their ideas and ask their questions about education, health care, job security and other issues that matter most to people in Ontario. Following her wide-ranging town hall in Toronto on November 20, Premier Wynne will host a second meeting on Wednesday, December 13 in Peel Region.
The Premier’s Town Hall will take place at Century Gardens Recreation Centre at 340 Vodden Street East in Brampton, with former Rogers TV host Nav Nanwa as moderator. Admission is free at the event, which is open to anyone who wants to share their thoughts on the government’s plan to create a fairer, better Ontario for everyone.
General admission seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Century Gardens Recreation Centre. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m., and the Premier’s Town Hall will start at 7:00 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.
“Ontario’s economy is doing well, but we know that those numbers don’t tell the whole story. Too many people are being left behind, and that’s why our plan to create more fairness and opportunity is about making sure that everyone has the chance to share in our province’s prosperity. Nobody knows our province better than our people — and I am looking forward to hearing about the issues that matter most to you, the people of Ontario.”
