Able-bodied people shouldn’t be living off social assistance when there are 200,000-plus jobs available in the province, insists Premier Doug Ford.

“We don’t want healthy people sitting at home collecting off the hardworking people of Ontario,” he said Tuesday…

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said Ford needs a better understanding of the barriers faced by those on social assistance attempting to get into the workplace…

“I think the premier needs to acknowledge that folks do want to work but they need to have not only pathways to employment in terms of job leads but they need to have their dental work done, they need to have appropriate clothing for the workplace, sometimes that means expensive work boots, all kinds of pieces of equipment and in some cases training,” Horwath said.
