Four years ago, our province was leading the world with the Ontario Basic Income Pilot. Thousands of Ontarians were receiving a Basic Income and their improved health, employment and well-being was a testament to the effectiveness of this policy. Despite their repeated promises on the campaign trail, Doug Ford's government cancelled the program within weeks of coming to power.
This time we need to be sure that we're electing MPPs who believe in Basic Income and are committed to making it happen. That is why we have created a tool for you to ask your candidates to take the Candidate's Pledge. With a few short clicks, you can email all the registered candidates in your riding, letting them know their stance on Basic Income is important to secure your vote and asking them to take the pledge.
During the last federal election, our Candidate’s Pledge helped elect 15 of our pledge-takers, including one cabinet minister. This time, we plan to help elect even more but we need your help. Will you push your candidates?
