Re: "Brar swaps perks for poverty," the Now, Nov. 29.
What should we think of a Surrey MLA who has decided to spend a month living on $610 "to experience first-hand what life is like being on welfare."
Jagrup Brar's decision has amazed me. He is neither a student nor a social worker. He is well educated, a Canadian university graduate.
Any welfare recipient can tell you what Brar is going to say after one month, that it is very hard to get by with $610. Mr. Brar, You don't stand outside to know cold it is when you have a barometer.
You want to do something, hand over $20,00 to the food bank. I am not impressed.
