Ontario Forced To Pull Plug On Universal Basic Income Program
Just another failed Socialist program and the only ones who are shocked are Socialists. The time has come for personal responsibility…
How many times do they have to try this before they understand it makes no sense at all?
BTW, They weren’t “forced” to scrap the program. A conservative government was just elected replacing a very Liberal one and they made the conservative choice to scrap it. Someone has to show the Liberals there is no such thing as unicorns or money trees.
No way!! It really didn’t work???https://t.co/GfjQfdLhbu

Ontario is pulling the plug early on a universal basic income pilot project intended to last three years. The program, which was launched in April of 2017 was, shockingly, found to be far too expensive and simply unsustainable. (Who would have guessed?)
Universal basic income is “clearly not the answer for Ontario families,” explained Children, Community, and Social Services Minister Lisa MacLeod, adding that the program was “not sustainable.”
Though the welfare program was intended to last three years, it will be coming to an end this week, announced MacLeod. She promised the program’s exit would be done “ethically” and would provide “more detail at a later date.”
Roughly 4,000 Canadians, regardless of unemployment status, are enrolled in the program. “[A] single person could have received up to about $17,000 a year, minus half of any income he or she earned. A couple could have received up to $24,000 per year. People with disabilities could have received an additional $6,000,” reports CBC. More
Ohhhh. Didn’t work out for you guys? Too bad. That will be the day I get up and go to work so the state/city/fed can take it and give it to some slug sitting on their ass. With all the social programs from general asst., food stamp, Medicaid etc why do u need another program?
