Capitalist: You seem to have a problem with those who live in low income, I wonder why that is? Why do you blame them and no the source?

While you may be educated, you sure do lack empathy or compassion and blame those who are not in control for the problems of this city.

So let us look at the sytem for a second, so if you lose your job, cannot access EI benefits and forced onto welfare, as a single person you are entitled to $572.00 per month. So please tell us how someone is suppose to pay their rent/mortgage, bills etc on this amount?

Or how about if you get injuried or sick and cannot work, it takes about three years to get on ODSP, which in reality is not much better better then welfare, soo would like to to live in abject povrty because you could no longer work?

If yuo want to lay blame, lay it on the elite of this city, who have the power to make and break decisions, which in reality we have seen the decline in this city, the poverty rates soaring based on their decisions and people like you who are oblivious to the real issues.

Interestingly enough is the poverty rates reductin they keep on going on bout, which coverd the eyars 1995 to 2005, which decrease mostly by the effort to get seniors that were entitled to benefits. The working people have had significant decreases across the board in terms of wagesw and benefits, the contracting out of work, the alck of living wage jobs and here we ahve our city building more stores that paty
