Betty Nickerson is on disability support. She can’t walk or stand for long periods of time and she’s had a series of health issues with her heart and back.
With Ontario’s latest announcements to cut the planned increases to social assistance from three per cent to 1.5 per cent, and also cut the basic pilot income project, Nickerson is upset.
“We’re going to be dinged again,” she said. “I’m one of the lucky ones, I have a place to live.”
