Petition: Stop the cuts to Toronto Public Health

Published on May 6, 2019

I've heard from many of you about your outrage over the Government's plan to cut Toronto Public Health's (TPH) funding by $1 billon over the next 10 years. I believe this is a deeply dangerous decision that will negatively affect the lives of many. 

With almost 100 public health services and programs that TPH operates and contributes to in Beaches-East York alone, this will have a direct impact on our local community. Programs like school immunization, food inspections, diabetes prevention, leadership skills training for at-risk youth, and outbreak response.
You can see the current list of programs that will be affected below and also add your voice to this important issue by signing my petition at beyrima.ca/toronto_public_health_cuts.
