(1292) Ontario basic income pilot cancellation


If Ontario’s new Drug Ford government thought they could just cancel a large scale test of a basic income program and everybody would just forget about it they may be disappointed.  What an embarrassment.  Where’s all this business intelligence Ford is supposed to have?  Poverty is bloody expensive and Ford gave indications during the election campaign that the pilot would be respected.  This cancellation represents a total poverty of imagination and total failure to embrace reality and deal with complexity.
A buck a beer?  Go fuck yourselves.  One of their own party elders wrote the paper the test is based on.  Senator Segal is quite eloquent here on CBC regarding the cancellation.
