New column day

Here, on the Wall government's embarrassing excuse for a strategy to reduce poverty in Saskatchewan - and the people who are being left behind or shipped away as a result.

For further reading...
- Again, the report of the Advisory Group on Poverty Reduction is found here (PDF). And I wrote here about the lack of investment in poverty and related issues from all levels of government in Saskatchewan.
- D.C. Fraser reported on the worried response to a plan to do nothing.
- And while I've previously linked to reports on the Saskatchewan Party's slashing of funding for the Lighthouse's homeless shelters, the news this week that people with mental health issues and no supports outside Saskatchewan are being issued one-way bus tickets out of the province only makes the Wall government look all the more callous.
