http://www.cbc.ca/the180/excerpts/2013/10/09/should-canadians-get-a-guaranteed-minimum-income/ Next week Conservative senator Hugh Segal will give a speech in front of a convention of business owners, about ways to eliminate poverty in Canada. He'll tell them the idea he favours is the establishment of a guaranteed minimum income for all Canadians. In the 1970's it was tried in Dauphin, Manitoba, and Segal says "mincome" should get another chance. Before he heads to that convention, he'll make the case here on The 180. Should your income be topped up by the government if you don't make enough on your own? Leave your comments below if you'd like to let us know what you think of the idea. ---------- While I realise this is probably a calculated move to make Conservative Senators look good, this is a good idea. Get rid of EI and welfare subsidies and give everyone a minimum amount every year. People will still work because they'll still need more money. Trudeaus liberals should jump right on this. It's a win win, Any opinions on this? It would all go to the economy and bump it up.
