YOU NEED HELP.

You shouldn't have to do this on your own. USO created this video to urge Premier Ford to fund municipalities for flood mitigation, response and recovery.

Premier Ford, United Shoreline Ontario is asking you, pleading with you, to URGENTLY:

1) make emergency management plans for the hazard of flooding mandatory for the Province of Ontario, and

2) provide sufficient emergency funds to the local level to prevent, prepare, mitigate and respond to the imminent threat. Recovery will come later, but funds for prevention, preparation, mitigation and response are desperately needed NOW.
