On Friday May 2nd, the leader of the New Democratic Party, Andrea Horwath, announced that her party would not be supporting the Liberal’s 2014 budget. With that, the Legislature was dissolved and an election was called for June 12th.
Elections provide a unique opportunity for REALTORS® to engage with their local leaders and inform them on the issues that matter most to Ontario home owners and our industry. That’s why we recently launched our “Say No to Another Home Owner Tax – Don’t Tax My Dream” campaign.
This campaign will help individual REALTORS® or their local boards get engaged during this election period. This could mean hosting a local all candidates’ debate or volunteering for a candidate. We encourage our members to meet, contact, and build relationships with candidates from all major parties across Ontario. It also means coordinating with local volunteers and OREA staff to help bring our opposition to the MLTT to the fore.
We look forward to working with all of those who will be helping with our efforts during this busy time and remember to visit www.donttaxmydream.ca and use the social media tag #NOtoMLTT to help spread the word about our Don’t Tax My Dream campaign!
