A Bad Time to be Poor
(Vancouver) BC's provincial government received a warning today from researchers who say its package of new welfare rules is radical and unprecedented, and will cause unacceptable hardship and upheaval in communities across BC.
The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) and the Social Planning and Research Council of BC (SPARC BC) joined with anti-poverty advocates at a news conference this morning to release A Bad Time to be Poor: An analysis of British Columbia's new welfare policies. It is the first comprehensive review of the full package of policy changes.
