Eli Larsen How will you be compassionate today?

The first of a two-part series called Building Trust in Your Community with my friend and colleague, Elaine Power.

Elaine is a co-founder of the Kingston Action Group for a Basic Income Guarantee. Elaine Power will explain, in her perpetually gentle manner, why a Basic Income should matter to every Canadian.

Elaine is on Facebook at and on Twitter at @ElainePower6. For more information on Elaine, visit

And finally, if you believe a basic income should be part of the Canadian policy landscape, contact your MP or your MPP and tell them so!
