Don't squeeze those who are poor

The poor are paying for the well-off through consumption taxes and MSP payments at a minimum. Really need to boost the welfare and disability rates to lift people out of poverty especially children and the elderly. Housing allowances need to double to keep pace with our housing market. More mental health services, educational and training supports - daycare, too.

    I heard that BC’s welfare rates are about half those of AB. But ultimately, we need a fairer taxation system, including a guaranteed annual income plan. Also publicly supported green housing and limits on construction of palatial mansions.
