Wynne begins 3-year trial of “basic income no matter what”

True to her activist creed, Premier Kathleen Wynne will introduce a trial program of payments to poorer Ontario residents — “a basic income, no matter what.” The program will see the three-year trial begin immediately in Hamilton, Lindsay and Thunder Bay. The plan is “a basic income pilot project aimed at providing financial stability for low-income residents during a time of precarious work and a changing economy,” the Premier is quoted from remarks in Hamilton. Global News.
