Welfare War How to fight back

For 16 years the BC Liberal government, in tandem with the Harper government, has waged an overt WAR ON THE POOR. As a result the official measure of rich-poor divide in BC has almost never been higher. In the City of Vancouver it is especially bad because the decade-long welfare freeze has happened at the same time as a massive increase in rents. The result is that thousands of Downtown Eastside residents have reacted in at least three ways a�� welfare fraud, fare evasion and theft, especially shoplifting. Given the siege against those residents this is justified and to be expected. Editor David Beattie examines the issue close-up and personal, at length.

    I love the writing style of this publication. I don’t understand all the issues at stake, but congratulate you on entertaining, worldly relevant articles. Aside to the ‘Soiled Mattress’ your introduction and reply were excellent.
