Under the former Liberal government, Hamilton, Thunder Bay, and Lindsay were test cities for a basic-income pilot. Eligible citizens were offered a guaranteed annual income. The idea was to check on how the participants' lives changed after three years, then decide whether to take the plan provincewide. Subsequently, the new PC government cancelled the pilot. The Agenda welcomes Evelyn Forget, who's spent four decades researching this subject, much of which is captured in her new book, "Basic Income for Canadians : The Key to a Healthier, Happier, More Secure Life for All."
