woody10: you see things your way, I see things in a different way. But the way that you think goes along with a real life story about a poverty stricken neighbourhood and those predetermined perceptions about those who are poor that I heard from a pretty prominent person in this city at a poverty meeting, who would have more information about the topic then you.

So please answer my question from yesterday, have you ever had to access Ontario Works? I know you said that you were laid off from your job but no give no real time frame as to when this happened, was 20 years ago or recently.

I met a person on the bus one day, the mother, lives with chronic pain, her child, was at the time striving to further their education in a chosen field. The system itself punishes the parent by cutting off funds when the child works to earn money for the tuition, the child is limited at around 100 per month.

So I guess my point is that if you have not had to access Ontario Works or ODSP since 1995, the Common Sense Revolution, then basically I think you are blowing smoke as you do not know the rules and regulations that thwart many in their pursuit of a higher education and how affects those families and their children that struggle.
