Meredith: You have very specific views about poverty, which at times at very slanted, you view things from your eyes and not from the other side.

You make assuptions that all who are on social assistance do not know how to shop or cook, which is ridiculous stance to take.

It is very easy to paint all people with the same brush. With the rise of precarious, part time and contract work, many find themselves having to access services, and to assume that all people want to be on social assistance their whole life is very short sighted on your part.

The current system makes it hard to jump the welfare wall.
