and me have just asked about the re-occurrent emergency in . His response was ill-mannered and unnecessarily impolite. Why would he have to brag about his "experiences" when the question pertained to helping those in need?

Andrew: What does the minister have to say to the people in Southwest or rural Ontario, or remote First Nations communities in the North, who will no longer have access to the books and services they’ve come to rely on?

Andrew: As a city councilor, Doug Ford voted to slash the Toronto Library budget by nearly 4 million dollars. And he infamously said that he would close libraries in his own community: “absolutely, in a heartbeat”.

NDP Culture critic : 50% cut to Southern and Northern Ontario Library Services will devastate Ontarians' ability to access library services. Why is the ministry taking away Ontarians’ access to books and other vital resources libraries provided to Ontarians?

Vanthof: Earlier today, we wrote to Elxns Canada, since it looks like the Ford's stickers fit the definition of elxn ads under federal law. Will the stickers come down during the elxn? Or will Ford force gas stations to register as third party advertisers?

Vanthof: Families want to see investment in their schools and their healthcare system, but they’re getting cuts while the Ford govt invests all of their time and money promoting Ford and his partisan agenda.

Horwath: What does Ford have to say to students like Angel, whose schools haven’t received the investments they need for the technology to support his ill-conceived e-learning scheme? (based on Ford's response: nothing at all)

Horwath: Angel Roberts from Emery Collegiate said at our town hall this week: “the technology is outdated (at our school), and has not been upgraded to stand up to the current tech needs of students. With Ford’s push towards e-learning, the need is clear. We need better tech.”

Horwath: As one of the many teachers who received a layoff notice put it: “Only in Doug Ford’s Ontario, could I receive an Award of Distinction one week, and a letter confirming my job loss for September 2019 in the next week”

Horwath: Parents and students don’t need 100s of supply teachers waiting at home for work opportunities; they need educators in our schools, helping students succeed. This week, over 2,000 educators have received a letter saying there’s no job for them in September.

Horwath (unable to get an answer from Ford, turns to Minister of Education): Does the Minister of Education consider it a job loss if a teacher is laid off from a full-time position but is offered occasional supply teaching instead?

Horwath: Students & their parents just don’t believe Ford. They see the plan for larger classes & fewer courses. They hear his overheated rhetoric and they don’t see a plan for education. They see a recipe for cuts in the classroom and chaos in schools.

NDP leader : In Peel, where 369 lay-off notices have gone out to teachers the superintendent of human resources says this is not normal. This is not routine. This is real and it is bad. Does Ford think he’s not telling the truth?

Libraries are pillars of our community and provide Ontarians with all sorts of services and programming. What a devastating attack on our ability to freely access knowledge.

Today we marked the Day of Action on Overdose Deaths with a moment of silence. The opioid crisis is killing people everyday, and tearing families apart. The Ford govt needs to listen to health professionals and immediately restore funding to overdose prevention sites.
