Budget balanced on backs of the poor

My concern is for the 20,000 people in British Columbia who were receiving the transportation endorsement

My concern is for the 20,000 people in British Columbia who were receiving the transportation endorsement, dispensed to individuals that lived in an area of public transportation who have proven to social services that they could not utilize said public transportation to facilitate their basic needs, such as grocery shopping and paying their bills.

Previously, these individuals were receiving an annual sum for this, but it was removed in the recently-unveiled budget, with a promise from Christy Clark to reinstate it in a monthly allotment of $77 to begin this October.

At the removal of $15 million from these individuals the provincial government can wave its flag of a balanced budget.
