YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO AN OPEN MEETING TO DISCUSS THE POSSIBILITY OF A BASIC INCOME FOR ALL IN MANITOBA, AND PERHAPS MORE BROADLY IN CANADA.
Winnipeg Harvest, Asper Learning and Friendship
Basic income can serve many purposes, and it can play a major role in the reduction of poverty and economic inequality. Since Sept. 2014, meetings have been held of a new group called the Basic Income Manitoba Network, affiliated with the Basic Income Canada Network.
We want to broaden and deepen the discussion of the need for, and feasibility of, a basic or guaranteed income. It is clear that our current approach to poverty reduction and ensuring economic security for all is not working.
A resource person at this meeting will be Jurgen De Wispelaere of McGill University in Montreal. Jurgen has worked with Basic Income networks in various countries, and does research on political strategies for working towards basic income.
So please join for this discussion of a better approach to economic security.
