When, in November of 2018, Ford’s then social services minister. Lisa MacLeod, announced the findings of a hundred day review of the province’s system of social assistance, she set out a broad outline for her government’s plans to remodel things. As I wrote at the time, the Tories were focused on two main objectives. They wanted to drastically limit access to disability benefits and, secondly, to craft a system of income support that would serve as a far more effective means of driving people into the worst and most exploitative jobs on offer. In the latter area, McLeod’s review pointed to the setting up of “locally responsive outcome driven service delivery models.” This is, of course, exactly what their new initiative is designed to achieve. People on social assistance are to be handed over to those who have a financial interest in using a lot more stick than carrot to get them into the low wage, precarious and highly exploited workforce.
