Anti-poverty activist to discuss effects of proposed reforms

Two reports in the last month suggested reforms to Ontario’s social assistance system: a commission created by the 2009 Poverty Reduction Act and the Drummond commission on the reform of public services.

Anti-poverty activist Marion Overholt, a staff lawyer at Legal Assistance of Windsor, will discuss how these reports fit into the reality of the shrinking middle class in Ontario, increasing rates of poverty, assumptions about people living in poverty, and our disappearing social welfare system at noon on Monday, March 12, in the law building’s room G101.
