Voting is a great way to show you are engaged in the community, get your voice heard by politicians, and help create the community you want. We're meeting with all the candidates to talk to them about increasing rates and benefits for those in receipt of OW and ODSP, increasing access to decent and affordable housing options, and increasing access to mental health services in our community. We'll get their responses to you so you can make an informed decision and VOTE.
CHATHAM-KENT, ON – The Project Coordinator of The Chatham-Kent Prosperity Roundtable, Phillip Mock, met with provincial candidates in the Chatham-Kent-Leamington and Lambton-Kent-Middlesex ridings over the past month to get answers to some critical questions on poverty in Chatham-Kent and Ontario. Mock asked candidates about their positions on
- Increasing the amount received and removing barriers for Ontario Works and Ontario Support Disability Program recipients;
- Increasing access to decent and affordable housing options; and
- Improving access to mental health and addictions services
Mock states “we want to get the right information to the community so they can make an informed decision when they vote. Each party has a different stance on the issues that affect your lives. It’s important to take the time to understand who you’re voting for. Regardless of who you vote for, just make your voice heard, and vote“.
Below are the questions asked of candidates, and their responses.
