FACT CHECK: Call the Premier for legal aid?

May 14, 2019

Premier Doug Ford cut 30% of the budget for Legal Aid Ontario. This means that fewer people will be able to get the legal aid service that they need.

In response to criticism over the devastating impacts of this cut, the Premier called into talk radio to make a promise his government has no intention of living up to.

Visit StopLegalAidCuts.ca to send the Premier, the Attorney General and your local Member of Provicial Parliament to reverse the cuts and to properly fund Legal Aid Ontario.
