2011 Pride Toronto Funding at Risk....Again

I received this message from Proud of Toronto today calling for a Ward Organizing meeting at the 519 tomorrow.
Can you believe that Mammoliti has found a way to put the funding in jeopardy again?!!?
Even though Pride Toronto was guaranteed funding by the city earlier this summer they don't actually reecive the funds until after the event.  In this case threats are being made that they may not receive the funds as promised.


Keep that great energy from Pride going a bit longer to help secure this important Toronto event!


As we speak, Toronto City Council is making plans to balance a huge operating deficit in the 2012 budget. Everything is under review, all city services are on the line, and decisions are being made very quickly about the future of our city and which programs and services will be cut.   The impact of these cuts will be felt by all Torontonians for years to come.

With no time to waste, we have started a campaign that calls on local residents like you to demonstrate your
Commitment 2 Community (C2C). Many of your fellow community leaders and neighbours have joined the campaign to protect the community services that make our city a healthy, safe and vibrant place to live. Sign up to be part of C2C - connect with other residents who live in your ward who are passionate about our communities and want to protect our vital city programs and services. Join us at a deputation training session to prepare to speak up at City Council!
