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!
