About 17,000 people live in low-income situations in Thunder Bay, the mayor says, and “a basic income would help with their needs.”
Basic income ensures social justice and equal opportunities for all. It is a moral choice put forward to all. Basic income also assures that every citizen is given enough money to live above the poverty line, thus adding self-esteem and worth to all equally. Additionally, providing a basic income will also alleviate the social conditions of that state.

Just as important as basic income is being housed, according to the mayor.
“Homelessness is a big issue in Thunder Bay,” says the mayor, and they want to move to a ‘Housing First’ model as soon as possible.
