Tell Ottawa: Rebuild Canada for the People, Not the 1%

While the rest of us were scraping by and struggling to keep our families and communities safe during the pandemic, billionaires and big corporations expanded their massive fortunes. We suffered and the rich prospered.

The pandemic has forced a rethink of our entire society. Bold progressive ideas are being considered. Canadian families need help but lobbyists and their corporate backers want to stop them at all costs.

That’s why we are launching Rebuild Canada for the People, Not the 1%. It’s a set of bold policy ideas to lift up Canadians, voted on by North99 community members.

It includes a green recovery, universal basic income, universal pharmacare, more childcare and affordable housing, by making the 1% pay their fair share.

The federal government is deciding their recovery plan right now, so we need to act now. Will you contact your MP to support a recovery for the people and not the 1%?

It’s simple. We’re asking for 5 bold policies that everyday Canadians need, and 3 tax reforms that will force the super-rich to finally pay their fair share.

1) A Universal Basic Income to ensure that all Canadians have the income to meet their most basic needs and that essential workers finally receive a living income.

2) A Universal Pharmacare program that will make sure no Canadian has to take on debt just to pay for their prescriptions.

3) A massive $100 billion Green Reconstruction Fund that will invest in renewable energy projects, decarbonize our energy, and create millions of good-paying jobs.

4) Based on our community feedback, we’ve added two other policies – affordable childcare through a National Childcare Program and a plan to Make Housing More Affordable by expanding affordable and public housing.

5) Reduce inequality and make the rich pay their fair share by cracking down on tax havens, implementing a wealth tax on the richest 0.1%, and Pandemic Profits Tax that will hold accountable the corporations and billionaires that have been profiting of this pandemic.

Together we can ensure the government’s plan helps regular Canadians, not corporations or the 1% – sign the petition to tell the government to act.
