There are special interest groups who are using the opportunity of a service review to hand over public service delivery to profit-seeking corporations. Cutting services, privatizing them and slapping new user fees on residents simply cannot balance the budget. They can, however, turn Toronto into a city in decline.
We can’t let this happen. The deadline for responses is June 17. Here’s what you can do:
1. Fill out the online or paper survey.
2. Go to a city-run roundtable discussion and make your voice heard. You must register in advance.
3. Host a meeting in your neighbourhood.
4. Let your City Councillor know that you don’t support service cuts.
Call 311 to register for one of the sessions or visit http://www.toronto.ca/torontoservicereview to complete the survey.
