JF at the Mayor’s Taskforce i

2015/06/22 by

The Mayor’s Task-force on Social Housing held a meeting with the Jane and Finch community only after JFAAP sent an open letter asking why they did scheduled one here.

About 200 people attended and when they finally were allowed to speak made their views clear that there are major problems in the building.

The Task-force will submit its reports to the Mayor who will say if we will get to see its recommendations.

JFAAP forces the city to have a local consulataion.

2015/06/15 by
This is the second time when the city has called a set of consultations that effect special needs areas and neglected to include Jane and Finch. Both times we lobbied against this and both times got a local consultation meeting. The city tends to not promote this sort of things so we are happy to do that for them. Make sure you show up and have your voice.

JFAAP on the street

2015/06/03 by

JFAAP has decided that the first Wednesday of each month, weather permitting, we will be on the street advocating for the causes we support. This time we were out for the $15 and Fairness minimum wage campaign.  We got a lot of signers on our petition and made a lot of noise. The sun was directly on us so it was a great time for some portraits.
