Media Advisory - Can Canada offer guaranteed income to more than just seniors?

CALGARY, Dec. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - This time of year, people look for ways to help those less fortunate. Citizens will donate food, money and their time, but these acts won't reduce the number of impoverished Canadians. Large-scale change needs to come from government, and with it being the holiday season, now is a good time to ask whether government is doing enough to reduce poverty.

Media are invited to a press conference where Professor Herb Emery will present a ground-breaking poverty-reduction strategy that entails offering poor Canadians (of all ages) the same support programs currently offered to seniors.

What: Media conference with Professor Herb Emery
When: Wednesday, December 18, 2013
10 a.m. MDT
Where: The School of Public Policy
University of Calgary, Downtown Campus
906 8th Avenue SW
