Premier to announce details of basic income plan


The Premier will be in Hamilton this morning to make a long awaited announcement on a basic income pilot project.

Kathleen Wynne will be joined by anti poverty groups this morning at 9:00 at Liuna Station to unveil details of the plan that will see individuals be given a guaranteed basic income.

Housing Minister Chris Ballard, one of two ministers leading the initiative says "There has been so much talk, so much written. A little bit of study here, a little bit of study there. A lot of theory. We’re going to have an opportunity to do a rock-solid pilot that is either going to prove or disprove it."
