Rise Up!
Thursday, May 30 at noon

Tell the Ford government to stop the privatization of our health care

The goal is to hold a very large protest and march in Toronto starting at Nathan Phillips Square and going to the Ontario Legislature which will be in session with Members of Provincial Parliament there from across Ontario. For those regions that are too far to bus in to Toronto to join the event culminating at the Ontario Legislature, there will be a few large regional events as follows.
  • In Toronto:

    Gather at noon at the south side of Nathan Phillips Square across from the Sheraton, 123 Queen St. W.

    We will march to the Ontario Legislature at Queen’s Park.

    There is a designated space at Queen’s Park for people with mobility issues—we will be at Queen’s Park at 1 p.m.

  • Southern Ontario:

    Buses will come to Toronto for people to join the giant march to the Legislature.

  • Across Northern Ontario:

    There will be rallies and marches in the areas that are too far to travel to the Ontario Legislature as follows.

    • Sault Ste. Marie: Gather at noon at the Roberta Bondar Pavilion, march & rally.
    • Thunder Bay: Gather at noon at mini Queen’s Park
    • Dryden: Rally outside of MPP Greg Rickford's office (429 Government Road) at 11:30 a.m. CDST
    • North Bay: Gather at noon outside of MPP Vic Fedeli’s office (219 Main St E)
  • Eastern Ontario:

    There will be a march and rally in Ottawa and a rally outside MPP Nolan Quinn’s office (parliamentary assistant to the Minister of Health) in Cornwall. People from the region will join at one of these two locations:

    • Ottawa: Gather at noon across the street from The Ottawa Hospital General Campus at Faircrest Heights Park (550 Smyth Road, Ottawa, ON). More information TBD.
    • Cornwall: Gather at 4 p.m. outside MPP Nolan Quinn’s office, 120 Second St. W.
