LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Poverty reduction plan needed

We could see a B.C. that reduces poverty through bold and accountable measures, says letter writer

To the editor,

With legislation for British Columbia’s first-ever poverty reduction plan promised for this fall, we are on the cusp of a potential transformation. We could see a B.C. that reduces poverty through bold and accountable measures; a province that leads Canada towards eliminating poverty and decreasing isolation. I for one want to see this B.C., the product of an effective, impactful and comprehensive poverty reduction plan.
