CAMPAIGN: Make it visible! Join the lawn sign campaign to stop Ford’s health care privatization

Posted: June 19, 2024

(June 19, 2024)

As we head into the summer, we are building the fightback against health care privatization and putting out lawn signs across Ontario (see designs below). We have sent out 5,000 signs to local coalitions across the province and will order more if we are able to afford it. We are working to put up as many as possible to show visible opposition to the privatization of our public health care.

To be able to successfully mount enough public pressure to stop the dismantling, destruction and privatization of our public health care, Ontarians need to see there’s a fightback and have a meaningful way to join in. If everyone can help, we will do as much as we possibly can over the summer to build the fightback and make it impossible to ignore.

Support if you are able

If you would like to get a lawn sign, please contact your local health coalition (list is below) to get one.

If there is no local coalition near you and you are willing to keep a pile of lawn signs and help get them out in your area, please email us at If we have a way to get the lawn signs to you, or if you are able to come pick them up or meet us, we will do so.

We are working hard to get as many lawn signs out as possible but it does cost a significant amount. Each English sign costs $6.50 and each Bilingual sign costs $7.10. For those that are able to, please consider making a $5 donation to help cover the costs of the lawn signs.

If you cannot donate, please don’t worry. It isn’t meant to be a barrier to putting up a sign. Some people donate $20 or more to cover several signs for people. Thank you!

Share your lawn sign photos

For those that have put up lawn signs or have seen lawn signs in your community, please send in photos to share with us! If you have pictures of yourself, your friends, family, or neighbours with lawn signs, that would be even better! Please email them in to us at and use the subject line “Lawn Sign Photos” so we can spread the word and show all the lawn signs going up across the province.
