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:
101-240 Commissioners Road West, London, ON N6J 1Y1
If you have questions about petitions, please contact my office at [email protected].

Paid Sick Days
My bill to provide paid sick days for every worker in Ontario.
My Stay Home If You Are Sick Act creates a made-in-Ontario framework for providing paid sick leave to all Ontario workers, during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Stop Health Care Privatization
Tell the Ontario government to immediately stop all plans to further privatize Ontario's health care system.
Protect the Greenbelt
Tell the Ontario government to stop all plans to remove protected land from the Greenbelt and protect existing farmland in the province.
Invest in Ontario's Arts & Culture Sector
Tell the government to invest in Ontario's vibrant arts and culture industry.
Our London Family Act
Our bill to fight back against Islamophobia and hate.
London MPPs and the National Council of Canadian Muslims have collaborated on new legislation to fight back against Islamophobia and hate. Add your name to call for urgent action to tear down Islamophobia, white supremacist groups and organized hate.
Get more details and sign the petition calling for the government to pass this bill.
Pay Equity for Midwives
Tell the government to stop fighting Ontario's midwives in court, and immediately comply with the Human Rights Tribunal's order to pay midwives fairly, close the gender pay gap, and uphold the human rights of midwives.
Save Eye Care
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.
Protect water as a public good
Prioritize public ownership and control of water over corporate interests and make free drinking water accessible in all public spaces across the province.
Stop Auto Insurance Gouging
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.
Ontario Dementia Strategy
Tell the Ontario government to develop, commit, and fund a comprehensive Ontario Dementia Strategy.
Eliminate Komoka Park parking fees
Eliminate the parking fees introduced in August 2016 to ensure that Komoka Provincial Park remains accessible to residents of the City of London and all Ontarians.
Protect Migratory Birds
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.
