End the clawback of ODSP

End the partial clawback of funds earned through employment for those receiving ODSP. These people are the poorest people in this Province and esentially are living below the poverty line. What a sad state of affairs

Why are those on ODSP only allowed 2 incomes for one year?

As a radio broadcaster I was locked out of work , and my disabled x was refused needed helps .

Many reasons this edict of single incomes for the disabled who marry is wrong .

It's time to educate the public, and get their input, on this delicate matter. No one's rights will be compromised, it's up to the individual to declare his/her wishes, and the doctors to be absolved legally. 3. Decriminalize marijuana ...more »

Close down food banks

It's time to close down food banks. They started in the early '80s as a quick fix in that recession. They've grown into monoliths that the poorest of the poor rarely use. It's also providing our poorest citizens with horrible food choices. Ultimately, we need to give people enough money to feed themselves. We're not now.
