e-3786 (Social affairs and equality)

Initiated by Matthew Britton from Châteauguay, Quebec

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Prime Minister

  • We are in the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • No support has been given to the least fortunate in Canada;
  • People with disabilities, unable to work, retired people and the elderly are left behind; and
  • A universal basic income can be funded with a wealth tax on Canada's wealthiest corporations and billionaires and will greatly benefit those living below the middle and upper class of society.
We, the undersigned, Canadian citizens, First Nations, Métis, and Inuit, call upon the Prime Minister to implement a guaranteed livable basic income for seniors, people with disabilities, mental illness, or the inability to work, as well as to implement a universal basic income.
