Hi gang,
  BAD,BAD,BAD idea! As a victim of welfare cuts here in Toronto, Ontario, I 
can say that cuts don't work, they only serve to make life miserable for 
people on welfare. 85%?! We got 21.6% and we thought we were hard done by. 
How are people supposed to live on $43.00/month? How do you pay your rent 
with that? That is totally ludricous! People on welfare don't "spend their 
money on drugs and alcohol," they spend that money on rent, food, bills, 
etc. I just can't get my head around this idea at all. What are they going 
to do when people become homeless because of these cuts? Are they going to 
put some of the money saved towards looking after these people? these 
merchants are only shooting themselves in the foot with this proposal. If 
the people have less money on their cheques, they will have less money to 
spend in the stores of these merchants.
  Because of the cuts we've had in Ontario, my whole cheque goes for rent 
and I'm still $30.00 short every month and I still have to pay 
Hydro.(electricity). This is going to make life hell, not only for singles, 
but also for families. How are they going to feed their children, pay their 
rent and their bills on $43.00 a month? The mind boggles.
  They obviously haven't thought this out. This proposal isn't going to save 
them money, it's only to cost them money. They will have to spend more money 
building shelters and food banks. this will also lead to an increase in 
petty crime as people steal food to feed themselves and their families. This 
has got to be fought most vigorously. Do everything you can to fight this 
proposal. Don't allow them to put you through the same misery we've gone 
through during the last 4 years under Mike Harris. Thank God we're having an 
election soon, we're finally going to be rid of Harris. Fight for more 
housing, treatment on demand, and decent jobs for everyone. Fight and 
resist!
Bonnie
