Most CAs have received the resolution this month (January) and it will be discussed at a public meeting in January or February. YOU can help by contacting your local or favourite CA and telling them why their support is important. Bring a group to the meeting & make your voices heard! Download the resolution here. Or find it on our Resource page.
If your local CA or municipality voted to support our resolution, please contact your MPP to ensure s/he is aware that many people in their riding support the reinstatement of the Ontario Ranger program!
Here at FORP headquarters, we've also set ourselves a personal goal - we want to meet Premier Kathleen Wynne in person. We know that if she spoke directly to former Rangers, she would understand the importance of the program and it would be an easy decision to include it in the 2014 budget. So, tell us your connection to Premier Wynne (no matter how tenuous) to help us get our foot in her door!
With 2014 budget talks in progress, it's vital that our support network continues to grow so that the provincial government realizes how important the Ontario Ranger program is to many different sectors in the province. Remember, the annual cost of the program is just $1.8 million per year; small change in budget terms.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support. Please help us continue to spread the word about the Ontario Ranger program so it is not forgotten, and can continue to benefit Ontario's youth for many years to come.
