Today we marked the end of the outdated, ineffective Drive Clean program, and the first day of the federal government's carbon tax. We will continue to fight this unfair tax with every tool at our disposal.

He is constantly cutting services that are important to the people of Ontario. He is destroying Ontario.— Maria (@TheAmazingMaria) May 26, 2019\nAs an art major, I'm horrified. We need to continue to support indigenous arts and crafts...Hasn't this country put them through enough??? The entire creative community is so integral to ON, cutting funding to the arts is such a shame...— Jessann (@JessannReece) May 26, 2019\nOf course, this isn't the only thing that Ford's government has cut in the past few months.
