Hello, my name is (xx) and I live in (yy). I am writing to ask you to make doubling the ODSP rates a part of the (party) platform. Currently in Ontario people who rely on #ODSP live substantially below the poverty line. It is an impossible position and some are choosing to end their lives because of pain and for economic reasons. Please right this moral wrong and ask your party to put doubling the rates in their platform, with a commitment to implement in 2022. 

Thank you.
