Ford Government Seeks Praise For Not Making All Of The Dangerous Cuts It Planned On Making - 2019-11-07
For example, the statement promises $637 million in additional funding for children and social services. But that follows Ford's budget cutting $1.3 billion from the ministry responsible for delivering those social services.
Within that, the 2019 statement promises a $310 million "investment" in social assistance.The statement reads this will go to "continuing support" for the Transition Child Benefit and not proceeding with social assistance clawbacks proposed late last year. Advocates warned repeatedly both proposed changes would drive significant increases in homelessness.
