Hi Terry,
  Bonnie here. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Our "illustrious" 
Provincial Government has just brought in a Welfare Reform Bill that 
includes Workfare. Anti-poverty groups have been fighting this for a 
number of years. Workfare has come after Welfare rates have been cut 
21.6%. Rates for a single employable person went from $663.00 to 
$520.00/month. Life for poor, homeless, and Welfare people is nothing 
but Hell in Ontario. We can all thank "our wonderful Uncle Mike". What 
can we do to fight Workfare?
