Have you ever wondered how Canada has managed to lose most of its manufacturing jobs that paid a good wage? Weston could well be the poster child for this scenario. A feature documentary, ‘Poor No More‘ hosted by Mary Walsh, attempts to answer that question. It explores the reasons why there is such a huge disparity between rich and poor in Canada and why the disparity is growing.
Following the movie, attendees are invited to participate in a discussion of the issues with the executive producer, producer and director as well as Paul Ferreira and Mike Sullivan, respective York South Weston provincial and federal NDP candidates in the upcoming elections.
Place: York Civic Centre, 2700 Eglinton Avenue W.
