Food Banks Canada - About Hunger in Canada
It's Hunger Awareness Week in Canada. I just saw the doc Finding North about Hunger in the U.S. but what about Canada. People are underemployed or on disability or low income seniors who are struggling to get enough food to live on.
My thought is that every politician should live on what someone who is living on a disability payment or is unemployed for a month to see what it's like before they make changes to policies that affect all these people.
If you don't know what it's like to live it you can't speak from experience when making decisions that affect thousands of people.
