Social change doesn’t happen in a vacuum - the social and political context matters. So what happens when a Conservative government comes to power, bent on destroying the very thing you're fighting for? We talk to four community organizers in the fight against Ford in Ontario to find out. From teachers, precarious workers, students and parents of children with autism - they've all been active in fighting against austerity measures brought in by the Ford government. Karen Cocq (Fight for $15 and Fairness), Susan Rabb (OSSTF), Kate Logue (parent of two children with autism) and Brigit Crumley (Students Say No) give us their take.

There was so much to say on this topic that we've broken it down into two parts. Part one features Karen Cocq and Susan Rabb, Part 2 features Kate Logue and Brigit Crumley.

Featuring music by:

• Chloe x Halle, The kids are Alright
