An update of AMO's overview of municipal issues contained in party platforms for the 2007 provincial election.
This update includes links to correspondence from the Ontario Liberal Party and the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party, as well as new campaign promises from the New Democratic Party.

Background:

AMO members are advised to check AMO’s special elections section on its website, which has recently been updated to reflect new campaign announcements and party correspondence. In particular, AMO’s Analysis of Key Campaign Promises has been updated with links to recent letters from the Ontario Liberal Party and the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party. 

Members should note that the correspondence from the PC Party is in response to a request from AMO for clarification on PC commitments on municipal uploading.

The platform analysis also includes new commitments from the NDP on social services and affordable housing.

AMO will continue to monitor the respective campaigns to identify any new or additional information. Members are encouraged to regularly revisit this site to obtain up-to-date information on the election.
