Excerpt from the Official Report of
DEBATES OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY

Income assistance policy on child support payments

S. Simpson: The minister sits here and ignores the reality of the situation. We have half a million British Columbians living in poverty, and a third of those are kids. Poor kids is poor families. You get a gentleman like Mr. McMurter who wants to help his kids who are living in poverty and who are vulnerable, and this government and this minister rip away the money that he wants to give to his kids.

How can that be okay? It’s time to remove the clawback. Will the minister commit today to remove the clawback, or will he at least tell us when he is going to do it?
