DEFUND THE TORONTO POLICE:

The Toronto Police service is currently being allocated a 1.076 BILLION DOLLAR BUDGET out of an operational budget of only 13.5 billion. 

With this petition I am DEMANDING that the Mayor, John Tory, as well as City Councillors NEVER VOTE TO INCREASE THE TORONTO POLICE BUDGET AGAIN. 

I am also demanding the implementation of budget cuts to the Toronto Police Service to allow for the redistribution of these funds into underfunded and marginalized communities. We are in the midst of a public health crisis, an economic crisis, an education crisis. WE MUST DEFUND THE TORONTO POLICE AND REINVEST IN OUR COMMUNITIES. 

We demand a budget cut of no less than 10% of the current budget. 

We have lost trust in law enforcement as a result of cyclical violence, overpolicing in marginalized communities and a lack of effectiveness when it comes to keeping those communities safe. 

We want unarmed educated healthcare professionals handling our mental health crises. We want well-paid teachers and smaller class sizes. We want youth outreach in the most vulnerable communities. We want change. 

 

WE WANT TO DEFUND THE POLICE.
