Before Basic Income we were going to food banks, couldn’t afford to pay all the bills, couldn’t buy medications and supplements needed that were not covered by ODP and husband couldn’t take time off of work to have surgery for his hernia.
While on Basic Income we could buy groceries, buy all the medications and supplements needed to improve our health, husband was able to have the surgery to repair his hernia and take the necessary 6 weeks off work for recovery and started a home business so that at the end of the 3 years we wouldn’t have to go back on the ODSP.
If Basic Income is cancelled we will be worse off than before because of the way the ODSP system works, our health will suffer without the medications and supplements, my husband will not be able to afford to take sick days and I will not be able to afford to buy the ingredients for the products I make for my business, Raventree Naturals, to sell at the vendor shows I have already paid for.
