CANADA: ‘It’s our duty’: How giving Canadians a basic income can improve health and reduce costs

a person holding a sign: This photograph was taken by Jessie Golem, for her series "Humans of Basic Income."Jessie Golem, a Hamilton, Ont., resident, is among those championing such an initiative. Golem was part of a pilot project in Ontario three years ago that provided income support to 4,000 low-income earners in several communities across the province. The pilot was only in place for a little over a year before it was abruptly cancelled by the government of Premier Doug Ford.

    Like if money grows on trees.
    Even though the idea has realistic values who would pay for it all.
    Kamyar Razavi and Mike Le Couteur maybe these two will take their income that they have right now and Supply it to everybody I came from a poor area and I struggled with income and I had to work multiple jobs get my way out of from alcohol and drugs and I found my way crawling to the top I took on a trade did my time like everyone else scratch my way in scratch my way up.
    When can ask yourself is I’m how indebted is Ontario right now that’s what the Liberals left us provincial e and looks now that the Liberals against federally now are leaving us in the same debt money does not grow on trees if any Guyanese thinks it does Dream On.
    Also remember what the last Canadian Guyanese did to the country believing in this fantasy is like might as well be on drugs

    Crap….failed everywhere…Government responsibility to make/create employment or assisting people wanting to open small business etc….typical liberals never consider who in hell gonna pay for this. Just another effort towards more Government control.
