Planned Demonstration for Queens Park
February 16, 2005 permalink
A new organization, called Advisory Committee for Child and Youth Services, has been organized by joining most of the active parents groups in Ontario. A demonstration is planned for Queens Park in Toronto on Wednesday February 16, 2005 from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm. The organization will request a commission to inquire into the failures of the current legislation. An objective is to eliminate expansion of the powers of Social Services at the expense of families.
In making appeals to politicians, the sole measure of credibility is the number of persons. Over a hundred people are necessary, and a substantially larger number will assure some meaningful response from the political process. For this event, children will help, but be sure they have adequate protection from the weather. All constituent groups will be recruiting as many persons as possible from their own areas. In case you are not approached in person, consider yourself invited by this message.
