We can change the world, one conversation at a time. Since launching the All Together Now! campaign in 2010, our Champions for Change have talked to thousands of Canadians about rising income inequality and the four things we need to stop it: good jobs, quality public services, tax fairness and labour rights.
Please tell us how many conversations you've had. If somebody you were talking to said something particularly memorable -- funny, smart, or poignant -- tell us that, too.
|"Today was my last day on the Fairness Express bus tour and let me say that was one fantastic experience! Met some more beautiful people and have learned so much about myself in the process. Keep talking people about income inequality and fair taxation because this affects us all. We all have the responsibility to educate and communicate and hopefully we as the people in this country will be the difference! I'm truly feeling a huge sense of accomplishment today!" (NS)|
|“My husband and I both have good, middle-class jobs, but even we struggle at times," said a woman in Goderich. "Both of our kids are in college, and the cost of living is always increasing. It can be a challenge. I have no idea how lower income families are getting by, if at all. It must be impossible.” (ON)|
|"How can you live on $906 per month?" said a man in Penticton who has been on a disability pension since suffering a back injury five years ago. "I want to work. I could be retrained on computers. I could be a translator. Where are these jobs? Open the door. I want in."|
