OneToronto to supporters: "We Must Raise the Bar for this Election"

Former Toronto Mayor David Crombie Expected to Speak

Monday night residents from across the city and activists from environmental, arts, labour, poverty, housing and cultural organizations will come together under the OneToronto banner. They will be learning more about what is at stake in this election and develop strategies for how to raise the bar for the election debate.

Those in attendance will be encouraged to call on their friends, neighbours and communities to get involved. Ultimately all who share the OneToronto vision will be taking their message directly to council and mayoral candidates and asking them to ensure their campaigns focus on building on our city's strengths, caring for our neighbours, protecting the environment, and valuing community.

What: OneToronto Emergency Public Meeting

Who: David Crombie (invited), Jack Blum (Reel Canada), Sandy Hudson (Chair, Canadian Federation of Students Ontario)

And: Award winning performers Tabby Johnson and Theresa Tova

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
