Occupy Toronto reps said they are going to have a rally on May 1, 2012 at 4 pm in Nathen Phillips square, and they wanted everyone to withdraw there labour, or at least "leave work early", that day to join them.
“When voters reduced McGuinty’s government to a minority, they called for compromise and fairness in the legislature. Instead, the Premier has tabled a budget that cuts funding for hospitals, schools and social assistance while refusing to heed to public demand for corporations to pay their fair share after years of paying less,” said Ontario Federation of Labour President Sid Ryan. “By putting the interests of bankers ahead of Ontario families, Premier McGuinty has awakened a deep and diverse opposition that reflects every community in the province.”
