A Poor People's Inquiry launches across Ontario
Inquiry asks: Is social justice
Premier Wynne's top priority?
Premier Kathleen Wynne told the media that social justice is her top priority. But 400,000 people use food banks every month in Ontario.
Premier Wynne's claim is believable only if she significantly increases social assistance rates and puts food in the budget of people who are poor in Ontario.
The Put Food in the Budget campaign is conducting A Poor People's Inquiry to answer the following question:
"Do the changes to social assistance introduced by Premier Wynne put food in the budget of people who are poor in Ontario?"
A Poor People's Inquiry will gather evidence from people who receive social assistance, and from people who volunteer and work in organizations that serve, support or advocate with people who are poor. Hearings will be held in communities across Ontario.
