TORONTO – A new community-labour coalition called Toronto CAN (Toronto Civic Action Network) will release its platform and its plans for the coming months on:

Monday, January 7, 2002
11:00 a.m.
Member’s Lounge
Toronto City Hall

The coalition is concerned that the City of Toronto is about to cut back and privatize city services and programs. “City councillors are discussing alternative service delivery and the elimination of programs,” says John Cartwright of the Toronto and York Region Labour Council, part of the Toronto CAN coalition. “We want to preserve the services and programs that make this a great city to live and work in, and we want the citizens of this city to have a greater say in these decisions.”

Speakers will include:

  • Tam Goossen, President, Urban Alliance on Race Relations
  • Tanya Gulliver, social justice worker, Church of the Holy Trinity
  • Peter Clutterbuck, volunteer, Community Voices of Support
  • John Cartwright, President, Toronto and York Region Labour Council

Toronto CAN was created recently when the Stand Up For Toronto and Save Our City coalitions united.
