On the heels of getting the Ontario government to back down from retroactive funding cuts to municipalities, the mayors of Peel Region want Premier Doug Ford to reverse another cut: those that affect legal aid services in Ontario.

In a joint letter with Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie, Caledon Mayor Allan Thompson and Peel Regional Chair Nando Iannicca, Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown and his colleagues formally requested that Ford and his newly appointed Attorney General Doug Downey restore the funding cuts, citing a motion that was passed at regional council.

Copies of the letter were also sent to all of Brampton and Mississauga’s MPs and MPP.
