Tell Doug Ford: don't scrap abuse protection for kids in welfare

Doug Ford just scrapped the child advocacy program, responsible for making sure kids in the welfare system are protected from abuse. This will leave the most vulnerable people imaginable -- children accessing public services, children with disabilities, Indigenous children -- without protection from violence. [1]
 
And he’s doing it to fund corporate handouts. He’s claiming there's no money for it, but with millions in tax cuts to corporations and the wealthy, that’s more than a bit rich.
 
We can’t allow him to strip children of their rights and their safety. We saw that after massive backlash about the Ford government moving to debate whether to remove gender identity from school curriculums, he backtracked and shut it down. [2] If we show them that the majority of people Ontario won’t tolerate these absolutely callous cuts to children’s safety with a massive petition, he could reverse again.
 
They could be packing up the office of Provincial Advocacy for Children and Youth any day now. Will you add your name before it’s dismantled?
