There are people in B.C. who fear having their children taken away because they are poor.

There are people in B.C. who do not have enough money to buy healthy food.

And there are people in B.C. who don’t fill their prescriptions for life-saving medication, simply because they can’t afford it.

All of these concerns and many others were reported in the B.C. government’s recent report into poverty – What We Heard About Poverty in B.C. – based on public consultations held between last October and this March.
