OFL Enough is Enough Campaign

June 14, 2023

The ODLC flag flew at the Hamilton event along with many others who are demanding real wage increases, rent control and affordable housing, affordable groceries, gas and basic goods, to keep our schools and hospitals public and make the banks and corporations pay their for share. 

There were demonstrations that mobilized thousands of people across the province who are fed up with wages that aren’t keeping up, sky-high housing costs, attacks on our health care system, Ford’s dismal of the environmental record, and the rise of hate. Here is some of the coverage of the event.
