VIDEO: Premier Wynne and Basic Income Announcement at LIUNA Station in Hamilton

Premier Kathleen Wynne's announcement on Ontario's basic income pilot project. Three cities that will be taking part in the project include Hamilton, Lindsay and Thunder Bay.

"The project will explore the effectiveness of providing a basic income to people who are currently living on low incomes, whether they are working or not. People participating in our pilot communities will receive a minimum amount of income each year— a basic income, no matter what." (24:21 mark in the video)
She then goes on to say:
"It's not an extravagant sum by any means. For a single person we're talking about just under $17,000 a year. But even that amount may make a real difference to someone who's striving to reach a better life."
