Poverty Reduction Working Group

Posted By on Mon, Jun 17, 2019 at 3:00 PM

There was a bill passed unanimously in December of 2007 by the House of Assembly: bill 94. This bill was to establish the Poverty Reduction Working Group (PRWG), whose mandate was to prepare a report for the government by June 30,2008.

You'd think the government would act on the recommendations of the PRWG, after all the work that the group did. I think that the PRWG was listened to because they don't listen to common sense. My point? All this work was for nothing. The government puts on a good front, but in the end it flip-flop. Two entities that care less about poverty are the politicians and the very wealthy. These are the people who lie, cheat and steal to get what they need to succeed in life.

It's true, and I do not see those people helping anybody living in poverty. The wealthy control all the money, so therefore, they control the government. The politicians are flunkies for the very wealthy and I don't care what kind of feedback I get for speaking out!

Truly, I believe all people living in poverty should not vote this year, because what good would it do anyway? None of the people who say that they want to help really care. When people in poverty vote for a certain person to help them, they are just being used to get votes. They don't care about people living in poverty. They never did!

So think about this: Those idiots are just telling lies to everybody. It does not take a genius to see that after all the years of lies and deceit, this has to stop. The government creates discrimination, hate and the stigmas put on everybody living in poverty. The working people create a lot of the stigma. What a way to treat your fellow Canadians, use them, then toss them aside like garbage. Help other countries poverty but not your own! What have Canadian people become? Feed other countries without a second thought, but if your own people need help, well that is when people living in poverty are discriminated against. I guess if you close your eyes there is no poverty HA!

You would rather help with other countries' poverty issues than fix your own country. What's up with that? Wake up people, charity begins at home—or did most of this country for get that!
