Basic Income will help decrease mental health, stress, anxiety, high blood pressure and other health problems caused by financial hardship. This will help decrease the financial cost on our health system. A Basic Income initiative will help make are Government smaller since there will be no necessity for the Government to create more Bureaucratic, unnecessary, red tape jobs, in order to lower the unemployment rate. Imagine all the benefits that will bring to Tax payers

What's wrong with you people, I have worked since I was 13 years old and now I live in the poverty class of society. I even have to rely on the food banks near by. I was never married so I don't even receive a widows penson. This is the sector of senior women who suffer the most. While some of my friends receive nearly three hundred more a month. The only and grateful thing I own is my Bella ( dog) and even times are really tough if she has to go to the Vet. Anyway that's my rant and I know this will be processed by a computer but I feel better !!!

I am a 38 yr old single mother of 2 children and have had to move in with my retired parents so that I can afford to feed my children. I would like to be able to live on my own once again and not have to make the choice of feeding my children or paying bills and rent!

It is so frustrating to live pay check to paycheck. After paying for food,hydro,housing,etc. There is barely enough left over. Economy will not grow if people only have enough money to pay bills.

Too difficult to survive with the cost of living these days with high hydro rates and the cost of food as well as clothes this could help someone on ODSP to make ends meet. Not just for me but anyone that's low income.

I'm signing this petition to support individuals and families who through illness or disability are unable to work and need assistance in supplementing their income in order to survive with the basic necessities for life. We are a country helping so many foreigners, yet we don't help our own citizens. I believe it all must start within our own home first, then the effects trickle down to others in need.

I live on CPP disability and social services and its not enough to live on we need a basic income that can't be deducted from the amount of social services we recieve so people with a disability can survive.
