ODSP max today for a single person is $1169

The NDP plan to raise it by just $200 a month until 2023

The OLP plan to raise it by just $116 a month, until 2023

The PC's, Say they'll raise it by $58 a month and then inflation only raises 1/
That same single person on ODSP bringing in $1169 today is at least $1000 short of reaching the poverty line EACH month. $1000 in the hole.

It's like everything you buy, costs double.
Could you afford your home if your rent / mortgage increased 100% ? and your food, phone ? 2/
laundry, bus tickets, cleaning supplies, toilet paper..
Potato chips.
I bought Potato chips today and they cost $4.00 for a medium sized bag. For someone on ODSP, that would be like $8 because their income is SO low.

1\ I wonder if @JPHornick @KingsleyKwok know about the pro-#Russia rhetoric coming from the hosts of Toronto #MayDay2022 they're attending tomorrow? Some white boys astroturfed an "indigenous" protest to tie Indigenous issues to #Donetsk/#Luhansk "self determination".
2/ In early April, I asked about Indigenous participation/endorsement. I was told by a member of @may1labour "The poster was designed by an #Indigenous artist." I asked the artist for comment. The response intriguingly disavowed official Indigenous "endorsement" or involvement.
3\ My conclusion: in an #election year they've tricked an #ONDP candidate into endorsing and appearing at a rally whose core organizers are pro-Russia, appropriating Indigenous issues to conflate them with Donetsk/Luhansk, tying Unions/the @OntarioNDP to Putin's genocidal war.

🚨Heads up🚨

This resolution is NOT supported by the Party’s own Disability Committee.

Please vote it down.

Folks need to stop speaking over disabled activists in #OurNDP
#ONDP #disabilityinclusion Resolution 12:15 Needs Based Supports for Children w/Autism
For context - a resolutions committee that includes many unelected staffers pre-prioritized the hundreds of resolutions.

Their picks on disability issues were chosen over those submitted by the actual Disability Committee (PLWD).

This is ableism @OntarioNDP
While we’re talking ableism in politics.

This whole Convention is again centered on inaccessibility - which don’t end with closed captioning FYI.

No lead time to read resolutions. 400 in 24 hours!
No details on elections.
No way to contribute via chat - must be able to speak.

1/👋Hello from 1 of the people that @ToddSmithPC referred to as "questioning this & spreading misinformation" with regard to whether or not students in group homes will be allowed to attend school IN PERSON.Throw shade Todd but the question remains. @Shawn_Jeffords #onpoli #ONDP
2/Days away from school year start yet students,families & agencies have NO clear direction from gov as to whether in person,in school learning is allowed for students living in group homes. I've seen the emails from agencies,I've received the calls,I've listened to the families.
3/Uncertainty is tied to current visitor & off site restrictions for residents of congregate care. Pls stop spinning this as spreading misinformation & laying this on students,families & agencies with valid concerns & issue a clear directive. You insulted families @ToddSmithPC

Says the person responsible for $1 billion heartless cut to women & children fleeing domestic violence, child protection,social assistance, ppl with disabilities & family responsibility office as PCs waste about $1 billion on what the premier calls “freeing the beer.” @RealKiefer
PCs spending more than the previous Liberal gov yet are slashing funding to healthcare,education,children’s services,domestic violence supports, the list goes on. How are they spending more while cutting vital public services you ask?
They’re giving their friends & PC insiders cushy jobs with big salaries & wage increases.They’re ripping up legally binding contracts & spending vast amounts of your money on penalties & legal fees.Need I mention the solely focussed PC propaganda taxpayer funded Ontario News Now?
