The legal team representing the plaintiffs in a $200 million class-action lawsuit over the early cancellation of the basic income pilot project is holding information sessions in Hamilton and Brantford next week.

Partner Stephen Moreau and associate Kaley Duff from Toronto law firm Cavalluzzo LLP will discuss the class action at three Dec. 5 sessions.

The sessions will give former participants a chance to learn more about the class action, which was filed in March 2019 by four program participants, and how it could affect them.

The lawsuit alleges the Ford government breached its contract with the 4,000 participants in Hamilton-Brantford, Lindsay and Thunder Bay.
