From The Fight for 15$ and Fairness Campaign,

Last year, our friend Avi Lewis debated Doug Ford on CTV’s Question Period. In that debate, Doug Ford made it perfectly clear that he would rather stand with Loblaws CEO Galen Weston, who has engaged in price-fixing schemes, evaded taxes and threatened to lay off workers, than pay a $15 minimum wage. 

Doug Ford pretends to be “for the little guy” but we know that his promise to freeze the minimum wage will hurt workers now and in the long term. Help us spread the word:

Wealth gap widens in Canada as richest see faster rise in net worth.

The wealth gap between the richest Canadian households and the country’s poorest has widened since 1999, new data released Wednesday shows, with the net worth of wealthy households comfortably outpacing gains made by lower-income households.

Statistics Canada says the average net worth of the top 20 per cent of families sorted by income group rose by an average of 80 per cent between 1999 and 2012, compared with a gain of 38 per cent among families in the bottom fifth of society.

Go green with brown beer bottles.

When you drink beer from a brown glass bottle, you’re helping the environment and supporting thousands of green, local jobs. Almost all (98%) capped brown beer bottles are recovered and reused 17 times before being crushed, melted and produced into new bottles.

Capped brown beer bottles directly supports good, green jobs. Unfortunately, these jobs are at risk due to the prevalence of canned beer.
