Media Advisory: Tuesday March 4 ODSP Day of Action Across Ontario

TORONTO, OTARIO--(Marketwire - March 3, 2008) -

Attention: Assignment and City Editors; Photo; and Provincial Affairs Editors & Producers

On Tuesday March 4 staff, clients and supporters of the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) will stage information picket lines at more than 40 ODSP offices across Ontario to stop the understaffing crisis that affects 325,000 Ontarians living in poverty.

ODSP staff are calling on the McGuinty government to add $60 million in this spring's provincial budget to bring Ontario's income support caseload ratio closer to the national average.

For the location of an ODSP information picket in your municipality, please see the attached.
