A small group of single mothers on social assistance took their fight with the government to the legislature today. At issue the government’s claw back of spousal payments. The group says the money doesn’t amount to much for the government — but makes all the difference in their lives.
Social Assistance - Aide Sociale
Rachel Goodine is only one single mom hurt by how BC handles social assistance and child support.
Ottawa ACORN members are taking action this Friday! Social Assistance is already inadequate, and after the recent social assistance review, members are concerned that the cuts to the Community Start Up and Maintenance benefit are making a bad situation worse. Members will hold an action in front of 370 Catherine St. (Ministry of Social and Community Services branch) on Friday, November 30th at 12PM.
Everyone is welcome to join us - there's power in numbers, so let's get members, friends, family and supporters on the street!
