Moving Beyond the Hopeful Sense of "Until"

A cardboard box filled with fresh produce

In December, many of us turn our focus to feeding people we don’t know, especially through food donations or volunteering at emergency food programs. We feed community members with a hopeful sense of Until. We hope that the food they receive will last until their next cheque comes in. And we hope that they will only need this help until they get a decent job (Statistics Canada tells us that most food-insecure people already have jobs. However, these jobs just don’t pay enough to keep food on the table).

What’s the key to a healthier, happier, more secure life for all?

Panel Discussion: Lindsay Basic Income Pilot Project

In April 2017, the Ontario government launched a basic income pilot project. Out of 4000 participants in Ontario, half will come from Lindsay. This means that Lindsay is at the heart of this innovative pilot. What happens there will tell us how receiving higher incomes will impact not only the lives of people involved in the project, but also the community as a whole.

Sponsored by the Basic Income Peterborough Network, this panel discussion reveals some highlights from the pilot to date.

Featured panelists:

John Hagarty, Chief of Police
Dr. Bert Lauwers, CEO of Ross Memorial Hospital
Roderick Benns, Lindsay Advocate publisher and journalist
Dana Bowman, Basic income participant
