Consumer Protection Now!


WHEREAS consumers should expect to be treated with fairness and honesty by the businesses and other entities that interact with them;

WHEREAS Ontarians are facing an affordability crisis made worse by widespread consumer gouging across many industries;

WHEREAS consumers deserve to be protected from other forms of unfair treatment including a lack of transparency in the marketplace, products and services that fall short of expectations in terms of value for money and quality, and consumer protection information and remedies that are unavailable, inaccessible, or unreliable;

WHEREAS the current level of consumer protection in Ontario is not adequate;

WHEREAS we have the opportunity to make real change in the lives of Ontarians by bringing in a consumer watchdog to challenge predatory price gouging and punish those who take advantage of vulnerable consumers; 

THEREFORE WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to:
Immediately establish a consumer watchdog organization to protect consumers from scams and gouging and provide them with the confidence that their rights are protected.
