If we had a liveable wage in this country and province we would see more stability, economically as well as socially, environmentally, etc. It has a ripple effect. When a human feels taken care of wholly, meaning the basics as well as the things we can enjoy in everyday life, then we feel true freedom. And so I say lets get rid of poverty and build a world where we all get to live in safety. No more fear. It can be done, other countries have done this, after all this is 2016!! Lets hope that we have the balls to do it in 2017!!
