A group of people angry with BC’s cutbacks to social assistance are meeting at the Income Assistance Offices in New Westminster today.
Low income mother, Diane Terrillon says with the cuts, her income will go from just over 12 hundred dollars a month to 900 – and she’s worried about how she’ll take care of her nine year old son.
“It’s not my son’s fault he has a mother with a disability, so why should he have to suffer? It breaks my heart every day.”
Terrillon says she frequents the food bank but still struggles to get fruits and vegetables on the table.
