Provincial Issues

On this page, you'll find information about issues before the Ontario Legislature.

For many issues, there is an accompanying petition. You can download and print any of these petitions, then collect signatures and return them to my office. Only original copies of petitions can be presented to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.

If you choose to collect signatures on a petition, please do so in a safe way that respects all COVID-19 public health guidance. Please note that original signatures are required,  individual sheets do not have to be completely filled, and there is no minimum number of signatures. You may consider getting signatures in person from your own close contacts, and then sharing the PDF or link with others.

Completed petitions can be mailed or dropped off in the orange mailbox at my community office:

My bill to make drinking establishments safe and prevent sexual violence and harassment.

My Safe Night Out Act is a bill to help prevent sexual violence and harassment in Ontario and make licensed premises safer for patrons and staff.

Everyone deserves to feel safe anywhere they visit. My goal is not only to ensure that those who visit environments where liquor is served are free from sexual violence and harassment, but that workers and liquor license holders have the tools they need to make their premises safe and enjoyable for all.

Today, optometrists and their patients are experiencing the result of decades of chronic cuts to vision care, exacerbated by the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19. New Democrats are urging the government to commit to a firm timeline for a fair payment schedule that will stabilize the sector and minimize this disruption to vision care. We must make sure that eye care services remain available for all Ontarians.

Londoners cannot afford to wait any longer for relief on sky-high auto insurance rates. If Ontarians are overpaying auto insurance companies by as much as reports suggest, that needs to stop. Ontarian drivers deserve better. I am urging the government to cap profit margins of auto insurance companies to they can't gouge Ontario drivers.

Millions of birds migrate across Ontario each year, but many do not make it. Windows that reflect the sky and clouds can appear invisible to a moving bird, so they continue to fly at high speeds until they fly into the glass and fall to the ground.

FLAP Canada states that over 25 million birds die through collisions with windows in Canada each year. Thankfully, we have a way to dramatically reduce bird collisions with windows, by adopting the Canadian Standards Association’s 2019 bird-friendly design standard into the Ontario building code for all new construction in the province of Ontario. This is a proactive and inexpensive measure that will protect Ontario’s biodiversity for years to come.
