Throughout the provincial election, We Are Oshawa worked in a variety of ways to push all parties to address issues such as poverty, education, and retirement security.
We Are Oshawa was very active in the Oshawa Riding throughout the provincial election because we know politicians and political parties of all stripes often ignore the issues important to you. As a non-partisan citizen's action group, We Are Oshawa partnered with students to host the People's Debate and, when the 19 year PC incumbent Jerry Ouellette was a no-show, We Are Oshawa was there to hold him accountable. Through persistent advocacy, We Are Oshawa was also able to secure the endorsement for a $14 minimum wage from Oshawa NDP MPP-elect, Jennifer French. And on election night, there was only one organization the media trusted to hear the concerns of the working class and people living in poverty in Oshawa.
We Are Oshawa is a membership-driven, grassroots organization and we need your help so we can continue working to make Oshawa a more fair and equitable place for everybody. Please click here to Take Action and join our growing movement. For too long we have watched as successive governments have put the interests of corporations and Big Business ahead of the interests of working class people. This leaves us with a choice: we can keep the status quo or we can work together to make our city fairer for everyone. You can help us build a movement in Oshawa, one neighbourhood at a time.
