McGuinty will pay billions for Green Power but shut down programs for poverty victims.

Posted: September 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

This is the REALITY of what this Government is actually doing to people with it’s spending and free wheeling attitude with OUR $$$ in the Green EnergyScam and energy boondoggles like the gas plant cancellations.

How does he balance OUR books?

STOP helping the poor!

Nice eh? After all, these low life humans don’t have the money or energy to fight back unlike the big Gas companies like Trans Canada who has a room full of lawyers sharpening their collective legal pencils and racking up pay cheques for probably an average each of $1,000.00 per hour!

To hell with the beaten women who’s husbands/boyfriends are looking for them in the streets. To hell with the children who don’t get enough to eat……they are just a burden on McGuinty’s Society!

Unbelievable!

McGuinty government making poverty worse with planned cut to “Community Start Up” benefit

Anti-poverty activists mobilize Kingston community with free BBQ and clinic on stopping the cut

KINGSTON, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Sept. 27, 2012) – The McGuinty government’s proposed elimination of the Community Start Up benefit will make poverty worse in Ontario, anti-poverty activists and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Ontario said today at a Kingston community BBQ and special clinic on fighting the cut.

“The loss of the Community Start Up benefit would be devastating for families in Kingston and across Ontario,” said Aimee Van Vlack of the Kingston Coalition Against Poverty (KCAP). “This benefit has helped women and children leave abusive situations. It has helped families move from homes that are unsafe and unhealthy. We want to help people access this vital benefit and to mobilize them to stop the McGuinty government from carrying out this cut.”

“More than 16,000 people use the Community Start Up every month in Ontario. It is one of the only ways that people on Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program can cover the costs of moving, save their housing and obtain the basic items they need to maintain a home. It helps prevent homelessness and increases safety for many women and children, making its elimination a particularly cruel development,” said Carrie Lynn Poole-Cotnam, Chair of the CUPE Ontario Social Service Workers Coordinating Committee.

“The McGuinty government has lost all claim to be in the ‘poverty reduction’ business with this proposed cut,” Poole-Cotnam said. “Only a government that has consciously chosen to forsake those in poverty would increase homelessness and endanger women and children rather than roll back its earlier tax cuts to corporations.”
