i have absolutely no idea what the
government is going to do for disability amounts. i suppose there's an
obscure possibility that they could put through the gai - which i was
kind of half planning around. they claim they'll let the experiment
through, but whether what ford says means anything or not is a coin
they could freeze it, which i could deal with.
or, they could slash it by 50%.
harris government was downright savage in it's attacks on social
service recipients, so there's precedent for something very damaging.
and, the economy couldn't handle what that would do, either -
unemployment would shoot up to 20%. we'd be dealing with an extreme
but, i expect the next four years to be very dificult for poor people in this province.
does not make sense to do anything at all until i get some idea of what
they're doing. the reason he didn't release a platform was because he
knew people wouldn't like what he was cutting. but, that means i'm stuck
in the dark.
i need to wait.
