Davies advocates for $300 per month disability assistance at ‘Raise the Rate’ rally

VICTORIA (March 18, 2021) – Opposition Critic for Social Development and Poverty Reduction MLA Dan Davies is calling on the NDP government to permanently restore the $300 per month income and disability assistance clawed back by John Horgan last December.

Davies highlighted that, while the $175 monthly allowance announced earlier this week is a good start, people living with disabilities are still experiencing challenges that have been worsened by the pandemic. The decision also goes against recommendations of John Horgan’s own task force, which recommended a permanent implementation of the $300 per month supplement.
