Ford Conservatives’ Attack on Democracy: CUPE Ontario Opposes Motion That Silences Public Debate

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In a move the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Ontario is calling “an attack on democracy”, Premier Doug Ford’s Conservatives have tabled a motion that would limit debate and public input over proposed bills in the legislature.

“With this government’s recent history of pushing through legislation like Bill 195 without consultation, and with the growing threat of voter suppression south of the border, I’m very concerned about what looks like an attempt to silence our voices,” said Fred Hahn, President of CUPE Ontario. “Ontarians need to be heard, and that means the Ford Conservatives need to do their job of actually publicly debating the merits of bills before they’re passed.”
