A paid sick leave bill is going to be debated in Queen's Park as early as Tuesday. If it passes, it would ensure 7 paid sick days — and an additional 14 in public health emergencies — for all workers so they can stay home and save lives.1

This bill has cross party support from the Ontario Green, Liberal and NDP parties — now, we need to get PC MPPs and Premier Ford on board, too.2,3

A flood of phone calls to PC MPPs from people like you, right before they return to Queen's Park, could drive home that constituents expect them to support paid sick days. Hearing from you could help sway their vote and make paid sick leave a reality.

Make a call now.
Instructions on how to call:
It’ll only take a minute, but make a big difference. It’s super easy.
  1. Read the talking points below. Enter your information to the right, including your phone number.
  2. We’ll call you back, connecting you directly to your PC MPP.
  3. Leave a message on the answering machine if you reach voicemail. If you speak to office staff, just ask them to pass on your message to your MPP. Make sure to tell them your name and that you live in their riding.

  5. We know PC MPPs want to hear from the business community. If you're a business owner, please make sure you mention that. 
Talking points to include in your message:
  • My name is [name], and I'm a constituent in your riding. I'm calling today to urge you to vote in favour of Bill 239 for paid sick leave.
  • Because we don’t currently have paid sick leave, the pandemic has meant that people have had to make impossible decisions about going to work sick and infecting their coworkers, or being able to make ends meet.
  • We need to enable workers to stay home and save lives. As my MPP, I’m asking you to work with other MPPs and support Bill 239. As your constituent, could you please tell me how you will address my concerns?
