Meet in person with your MPP

There was great conversation at the Lobby Day between former Rangers and MPPs and cabinet Minsters to get them to understand the real value of this program for Ontario Youth and they were very sympathetic to the cause. If you couldn't attend Lobby Day, NOW is the critical time to pressure your MPP to get the program back in the budget for 2014. The budget will be pretty much finalized by end of November so if you haven't made a personal meeting with your MPP (preferably as group), please do so now. Or take a brief moment to call or write your MPP. The timing is right. Thanks to all of you for the support!
