The Montreal 2014 – Liberal Biennial Convention adopted 18 priority policy resolutions.
One of which is Liberal Policy Resolution #100. “BE IT RESOLVED that a Federal Liberal Government work with the provinces and territories to design and implement a Basic Annual Income in such a way that differences are taken into consideration under the existing Canada Social Transfer System.”
Why is this significant? Because this is the Liberal Party passing forward policy to determine the election platform, and the Liberal Party wanted this go forward as an election platform issue. http://goo.gl/d6hjrF
Our job now is remind the Liberal Party that Basic Income is what the precarious 40% of the population needs to provide security of our basic needs.
