Petition to NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, Premier Doug Ford, MPP Bob Bailey, Minister Bill Walker

End Tarion’s new home warranty monopoly NOW: Give Ontarians a choice!

Why has Doug Ford changed his tune since he became premier? Why has he not ended Tarion's monopoly? Could it be that he is now more interested in catering to builders/developers than protecting Ontario's consumers?  Tarion has been studied for decades - the problems are well known. Numerous media reports show that there are many serious problems resulting from the legislation and how Tarion is administering the legislation.  As consumers continue to needlessly suffer, the Ford government now says that it is "looking at this policy area" (Minister Walker, letter to CPBH dated Dec. 14, 2018). As the Ford government stalls, each month the Ford government is FORCING approximately 5,000 families who purchase newly built homes to also purchase a warranty from the monopoly Tarion - a mandatory warranty that many agree is little to no good. What happened to Ford's slogan "for the people"? Justice Cunningham, who was hired by the Ontario Government to conduct an independent review of Tarion, ultimately concluded that Tarion basically needs to be dismantled.  Justice Cunningham laid out a comprehensive plan forward, with 37 recommendations, including ending Tarion's monopoly: "...I am recommending the introduction of a competitive multi-provider model for warranty protection.  Introducing competition should encourage continuous improvement and innovation. This in turn can lead to better consumer outcomes such as enhancements in warranty protection beyond minimum amounts..." (Tarion Review Final Report, Dec. 16, 2016).   It's time for Ontario to catch up to other provinces like Alberta, BC and Manitoba and offer a CHOICE of warranty providers! Sign this petition to ask Premier Ford to end Tarion’s monopoly and offer a number of warranty providers in Ontario -- like Justice Cunningham recommended -- and like other Canadian provinces are doing.  It's time for Ontario to catch up!

Petition to T-Mobile, T-Mobile Media Relations

T-Mobile Employees Fair Wages Fair Treatment

When we first began working for FX1 Mobile/T-Mobile, the enviornment was great. We did not dread coming to work. I mean, it was the kind of job you enjoyed coming to. Recently, however, there has been some unfair changes. In the past few months, we have been told that on an 11 hour shift, you are not allowed to sit down. The managers sit all day every day while at work, but the mobile experts and sales leads are expected to stand for 11 hours straight.They have also taken a huge portion of our monthly commisions away, cut our work weeks down, and taken away any and all oppritunities for overtime. They took the lower priced plans for people who can not afford huge downpayments, and gave us no incentive to sell to them. T-Mobile has stopped caring about people and started only caring about money! They cut all this down, but they did not cut the sales pressure or the expectations. If anything, they have raised since. They are not taking into consideration that we are people. We have families and houses support. We are now living paycheck to paycheck and it has stopped being worth it. I would like to see if we get the signatures maybe we can make a change in a postitive directions. We would just like to see something be done because everytime we have tried to reach out or say our part we are ignored and pushed to the side. Please help us get the recognition we deserve!
