Local, provincial, and federal politicians in Hastings and Prince Edward counties should expect a a fuller mailbox than usual in the near future.

Around 50 people, most members of the Hastings Prince Edward Poverty Roundtable, held a meeting today (Wednesday) and ended the session with a letter campaign aimed at politicians, the policy makers.

The campaign’s goal is to again remind community leaders just how hard, some would say impossible, it is to lead a decent life on either Ontario Works or Ontario Disability benefits.
