Re-Funding Health and Detasking the Police: Chloe Brown Campaign Releases "A Healthy, Safe City for All" Plan

Pledge to Rationalize Security Spend with $330 million diversion to housing, services, campuses of care 

TORONTO, June 8, 2023 /CNW/ - After years of austerity and burgeoning police presence, our city feels less safe than ever. Toronto does not need more policing, it needs more care. Today, the Chloe Brown for Mayor campaign released its budgetary plan to make the city safer by addressing the root causes of violence, the impact of its consequences, and a plan to address the devastation wrought on communities by both increased random violence and overpolicing.

"As advanced polls open today, our city feels increasing alienated from itself: community is stifled and suffering for so many working class residents and people in poverty. My plan will reduce the friction and aggression that can develop when unmet needs and enforcement are combined, the state we find ourselves in now after devastating austerity. We do not need to increase taxes to do this. We do need to detaskify the police from activities that are not its core social role and value."

The plan includes:

Campuses of Care - Workforce Housing Strategy

Paramedicine Investments for Crisis Management

Court Services and Justice Centres

"My plan will immediately start to reduce the social friction that leads to crime and rationalizes police presence in the city along with other, more appropriate forms of emergency response. It's time we brought some care and love back into the management of this city and stopped investing primarily in outcomes not root causes. My plan reverses that unsustainable trend," said Brown.
