In a province so rich in resources, our high poverty rate is unjustifiable. One in five of our children live in poverty. And if you are the child of a single mother that number jumps to one in two. No one should have to go to bed hungry or want for a safe place to sleep. We can do better in BC. We can implement a comprehensive poverty reduction plan that includes strategies such as increasing welfare and disability rates, so we can all have the chance to build a better life.
