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.

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.
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.
My bill to close oversight loopholes in home care clinics.
My Private Member's Bill calls for the Minister of Health and Long-term Care to be made responsible for oversight of home care clinics, to update the Home Care bill of rights to ensure that patients know how to complain about home care clinics, and to mandate the annual inspection of home care clinics by public health units.
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.
No one should be forced out of their home in the middle of the pandemic. COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of having a safe, secure place to call home. Right now thousands of tenants are unable to pay their rent and are about to be evicted. Many have nowhere to go. They are on the verge of becoming homeless - in winter, in the middle of the pandemic. Lives are at risk, and the government must act now to stop COVID evictions.
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
London families are struggling with some of the highest child care fees in the province.
Many families across Ontario struggle to access quality care, which makes it impossible for some parents — particularly women — to work.
Despite the fact that Ontarians pay the highest child care fees in Canada, the government is dragging its feet on working with the federal government to introduce a $10 per day child care program, even while almost every other province and territory has signed on.
Ontario's online health card renewal service is only available to those who hold an Ontario driver’s licence. People who do not hold a driver’s licence are required to renew their card in person, and not even the Ontario Photo Card is accepted as sufficient documentation to renew the health card online.
This is very limiting for anyone who does not drive, including those who cannot drive due to disabilities. I am urging the Ontario government to make the OHIP card’s online renewal more inclusive by making it available to all eligible residents, including those who do not drive.
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.
