Lorne: Well you want comments! Well, I guess what frustrates me is people like you who come from outside of Hamilton, yet offer no clear feedback into why people struggle.

If you were to look at the jobs prosperity collaberative and see some of the very agencies that purport to help those that struggle are actually part of the problem.

The current system looks at those who struggle as liabilities, not assets. I guess you would have to actually have the experience of having to access these so called agencies that step on you, that adhere to workfare policies, that deny people access to food, that step on your rights as a worker.

I guess maybe you should of attended the 25 and 5 forum held last Friday at the Welcome Inn and heard the stories, the life experiences from those who struggle all across this province.

Anyways, who are to judge anybody without knowing who they are, what their circumstances are and why they struggle. Sorry to say it but you need to look in the mirror, your viewpoint is part of the problem.
