Doug Ford’s social assistance cuts put Ontario’s health at risk

Hello HPAP Members!

As you may know, last week Doug Ford’s PC government announced that the previously planned social assistance rate increase will be cut from 3% to 1.5%. At the same time they announced the immediate discontinuation of the minimum basic income pilot study in Ontario.

Our HPAP Op-Ed in the Toronto Star by Drs. Alissa Tedesco, Jon Herriot, and Katie Boone explains why this is a serious move in the wrong direction. Please read and share amongst your networks and on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms!
