Geoff's two cents: Sweeping generalization? No, I do not agree with you but I respect that you have your view. During the last provincial election there was a public forum in Gore Park and I asked many people, are you going to vote? The majority of the people that attended were low income and their voices were, why bother, they do not listen anyways.

There was a forum on Poverty and Health a few weeks back that was not picked up by the main media source in this town either, why is that? I mean if I am to follow you line of thought, one would think that this important issue would of been on the front page.

Then I ask you, who is to blame, if not the system itself?

But then with the Common Sense Revolution, we seen both workers, who were strip of their rights and the poor were strip as well to be left with almost nothing. The growth of temporary work, where you have no rights, no protections, no job security. But then I get the feeling that people like you, have no gumption to actually stand up and fight for what is right.

Just actually what are you doing about it, nothing? Something? Expand your views.
