Description

Low Income People Crash Lavish Liberal Dinner Party: OCAP Organizes to Raise Welfare/Disability Rates On Thursday, February 25th, 2010, diners at a lavish Ontario Party Liberal fundraising event, which cost the invited attendees $950 per plate and $9,500 a table, did not finish their meals in comfort. Members of the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP) organized to crash the fundraiser in an act of outrage at the fact that rich Liberal Party supporters could spend more on a meal than people on welfare and disability have to live on for a month. The reality is that people on social assistance live on incomes that have lost at least 40% of their spending power since 1995. People are even poorer today than they were under Mike Harris.
