Did Ontario join Trump’s U.S.A. this week? None of what Laurie Scott or Lisa MacLeod are quoted as saying make any sense. MacLeod said: “spending money on a broken program wasn’t going to help” while Scott said: “the system is broken.”

Isn’t the pilot a program to gather data to fix the current system of welfare programs? MacLeod says 250 people were on the old Ontario Works (OW) benefits and 400 on Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) and will now have to transition back. Aren’t they the broken programs the pilot looked to “fix”? Scott said there was a “huge concern” especially about OW.
