We set the bar pretty high when we launched Our Toronto - crowdsourcing a platform rooted in longer term systemic change & launching an electoral push to win a plurality of council seats in 2018 was never going to be easy. We knew that we were up against some very daunting odds, yet people still gravitated to our cause anyway.
However, after careful consideration, we've decided to hit the 'pause' button on this effort until after the election. This decision was based on the realization that creating a platform to accomplish our ambitious goals was going to require more time than we have to build.
2018 has to be the year that progressives get the election right, it's going to require a contribution from everyone. We believe this decision will allow all of us to re-focus our efforts on the electoral battles we need to win to make a difference.
Thank you from the Our Toronto team!
