At approximately 2:30 this afternoon members of the Ontario
Coalition Against Poverty carried out an eviction of the campaign
office of Premier Ernie Eves. This action is a response to the past
eight years of Tory rule which have seen thousands evicted from
their homes, their lives destroyed. It is also a warning to the
incoming Government that policies which attack tenants and poor
people will be fought with equal strength. Act like a Tory and get
treated like one. Below is a copy of the eviction notice that was
served to Eves and his staff. More information and photos will be
available soon at http://www.ocap.ca

EVICTION NOTICE: Ernie Eves Broadway Avenue Orangeville,
ON September 29th, 2003

As the Tory Party plummets towards defeat on October 2nd, 2003,
we of the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty have and will not let
the last eight years of destruction go unnoticed.

As Finance Minister and then as Premier of Ontario, your legacy
is a brutal one. Cuts to welfare, meagre disability assistance
payments, a laughable minimum wage - poor and working people
living in this province have been hit hard every day your Party has
held power. Under the Tories, our streets have been overrun with
zealous police, our fridges have stood empty, our families have
been forced to live unsure of the roof over their heads.

Make no mistake - we do not forget the suffering and the death.
Make no mistake - we do not forget Kimberley Rogers, Dudley
George, the countless friends who have died on the streets. As
the people of Ontario prepare to declare you and yours unfit to
govern, OCAP is giving you a taste of what mothers, fathers,
children in this province feel when staggering rents and indecent
wages mean rent cannot be paid and the sheriff piles their lives on
the sidewalk outside what was once a home.

This is a send-off to you. And a notice to those who follow and
govern this province - the years of dispair and disrespect at the
hands of the Tories must be undone.

Signed, The Ontario Coalition Against Poverty http://www.ocap.ca
