Shaw Lecture: Income guarantees, freedom and global security

There is renewed discussion and excitement over the concept of a Guaranteed Annual Income – both the left and the right on the Canadian political spectrum have vigorously debated the merits and limitations of such a government safety net that would provide a basic standard living income to all citizens. Current pilot studies across the world, including Ontario, are exploring the feasibility of a Guaranteed Annual Income. Come join Senator Hugh Segal and local leaders Dr. Mandy Kay-Raining Bird and Pierre Stevens to build our understanding of the local, national and international contexts of this important issue.
