Because we stand against right-wing populism, and it's reliance on breeding fear of unfamiliar people to succeed.

Because we know that throwing the obscenely wealthy another tax break will not filter down to the working class - it has never worked before, and it won't start now.

Because we care about housing, we care about addiction, and we care about health.

Because we believe in each other, in supporting those of us who need help.

Because we know that cheap promises of beer and steak dinners are a facade for back-door money-grubbing.

Because Doug Ford is a crook and a liar, and we are pained to see our province under his heartless reins. 

That's why.
