Pissed off at how homeless people and others in the street are being treated
by the cops? Are you yourself being harassed? Want to do something about it?
The Ticket Defence Program formed in Ottawa to fight ticketing under the
Safe Streets Act, as well as NCC, OC Transpo and City of Ottawa Bylaws which
are targeted at people living on the streets. These laws are unjust. They
serve to scapegoat the poor, while all levels of government continue to cut
social assistance and fail to fund affordable housing.

By providing representation for folks at the provincial courthouse, we have
successfully had fines dropped for infractions such as illegal camping,
panhandling, so-li-citing near taxi stand, so-li-citing in an aggressive manner,
etc. But we need more people to join us. Members can volunteer for specific
tasks (the most pressing need right now is for more agents for court
appearances) and/or participate in the running of the group. All levels of
participation welcomed.

Come find out more!

Orientation session
September 21st, 6-7pm
Thompson Building (25 University St.), University of Ottawa
across from Café Nostalgica
room 124

The Ticket Defence Program is a working group of Direct Action Casework
Ottawa* and Legal Support Ottawa. We are not lawyers, although we do work
with lawyers and law students. We are not a social agency, charity or
political party. We are dedicated to struggle against a system which
maintains the inequity, indignity and needless suffering of poverty.
