(With apologies to Alison Bechdel and Liz Wallace.)
The ONDP's platform is promising an immediate 10% increase to OW, and a 5% increase to ODSP, bringing rates up to $794 and $1209, respectively. Adjusted for inflation, general welfare rates were $792 in 1995 *after* the Harris government slashed them by 21.6%. When ODSP was created in 1998, rates were $930. Adjusted for inflation, that would amount to $1362 today. #RaiseTheRatesOrGTFO

I only vote for parties who are to the left of Mike Harris when it comes to social assistance.
