Yesterday I spoke to Ontario's Standing Committee on Finance as part of #ONBudget2019 consultations. Told them: 1) Raise shamefully low #OW & #ODSP rates to help people and to stimulate local economies. 1/12
A single person on #OW gets on $733 in basic benefits per month. A single on #ODSP gets $1169. Avg rent for 1BR in Ottawa is $1023. Barrie, $1035. Peterborough, $850. Health Food Basket in Ottawa is $244. Waterloo, $280. TBay, $233. You get my point. 2/12
People on OW & ODSP are unable to pay for what they need. They live far below the poverty line. They live in substandard, dangerous housing. They rely on food banks & other charities. Or they go without. Increasing rates is the right thing to do. And it's smart economically. 3/12
