Nova Scotia advocates say now is the time for a universal basic income


Basic Income Guarantee Nova Scotia (BIG-NS) made its case at Province House Wednesday, hosted by NDP MLA Lisa Roberts. Feed Nova Scotia volunteers weigh donations at the new Burnside location to check items before sorting them out on April 26. A group is calling on the provincial and federal governments to work together on a feasibility study towards a guaranteed basic income in Nova Scotia. BIG-NS chair Elizabeth Kay-Raining Bird told reporters a feasibility study for a provincial guaranteed basic income could cost about $50,000. Funds could be reallocated from social assistance, he said, which would become redundant under a guaranteed basic income program.
