Description from EventBrite

The Basic Income Panel Discussion will take place at Carleton University on Thursday, March 9th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Room 270, Residence Commons.

Join us for a night of thoughtful discussion regarding the implications of providing Basic Income in the province of Ontario. OntarioEDS will be presenting our policy and research report in response to Minister Chris Ballard and Minister Helena Jaczek’s public consultation on how to design and implement the Basic Income Pilot. This event will be a great opportunity for students to learn more about basic income and poverty in the National Capital, as well as meet working professionals in the city.

The event will include an open Q&A with the panelists followed by a networking period. This event is business casual and all students are welcome. For more information about the Basic Income Pilot, please follow this link: https://www.ontario.ca/page/basic-income-pilot-consultation.

About Kate McFarland

Kate McFarland has written 36 articles.

I was a statistician, then a philosopher, then a journalist for a certain Basic Income News, and I have never been the sort to wed myself to any specific position or career path. (I have always chosen to remain in the precariat for this reason: my sense of duty is strong enough that I’d risk imperiling my own self-development if I were to accept a permanent position.) If you want to learn more about what I’m about, and how I see my ideal roles in the basic income community going forth, read the “cover letter” of sorts that is my Patreon homepage (updated November 2017).
