  5. Beware of Basic Income
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2016
    Wouldn't it be great to get a cheque every month just for being you? This is the sweet, fuzzy vision the Ontario and federal Liberals are counting on to sell their latest idea, a basic income. Just this year, the Ontario government laid the groundwork for a pilot project to test the idea. Any actual large-scale program is far off into the future, however, and that's a good thing. We need to take a hard look at the idea, especially in Liberal clothing.

    Media Profile in Sources

    Resource Type: Organization
    Representing over 55,000 Canadians, Fair Vote Canada is a grassroots, multi-partisan citizens' campaign for voting reform. We promote the introduction of an element of proportional representation into elections for all levels of government and throughout civil society.

    In a democracy, every voter's voice should be heard in Parliament. The share of votes the electorate cast for a party's candidates should match the share of seats a party is awarded, so majority governments will have a mandate from a true majority of voters. Those are defining principles of Proportional Representation, and those are the principles Fair Vote Canada endorses.

    The Leap Manifesto is, in a way, Canada's version of the burst of Left and socialist energies that have come with the Bernie Sanders campaign in the Democratic Party in the U.S. and the Jeremy Corbyn leadership win in the Labour Party in Britain. As with these, the explosion of popular interest reflects general disquiet about the limits of recent protests demanding changes from the state but having no strategy to transform it, on the one hand; and disappointments with electoral politics and social democratic parties that only seem to reinforce neoliberalism, on the other.
