yeah but ON's debt has nothing to do with the UBI pilot.
Disability programs in Canada are lousy. Yes we have the federal RDSP, but you can only use that if you already make so much $ that you have extra for the plan. I've done a fair bit of work for disability groups and always tell people to make sure to get disability insurance, our system won't be there for you.
a difficult topic
but i do think that whatever that amount ends up being
a corollary to it is that the amount of income workers can earn tax free
should be at least 150% of the welfare amount
so if it is 3000 workers can earn 4,500 monthly or 54,000 annually tax free
and still taxes need to be paid to cover societal expenses and needs
not sure what the best amount is
but there needs to be a clear incentive to reward actual workers in all this
