I recently sent a letter pushing politicians to work together for a pilot project here on P.E.I. to provide a Basic Income Guarantee. The reason for this follow-up is because I regret the tone of the first letter. All democratically-elected politicians deserve respect, not scorn; they deserve challenge and debate, not shame. I would want the same.
In my desire to see social justice and my hope for the many, not the few, I expressed my impatience for promises broken and empty gestures such as unanimous approval for BIG but no action. I still challenge all the MLAs to work with the MPs of P.E.I. to begin immediately a pilot project and see it through.
