Jagrup Brar Surrey/Fleetwood Mla, Goes on Welfare For 31 days he will live on $610.00 /mth, to show a broken system January 4, 2012 in Events, radio show archives, radio shows, Uncategorized by admin Middle Income Me Looking back as many of us do on New Year’s Eve, 2011 for me has been a year of many eye opening experiences and firsts. Its interesting to note that according to one website, the meaning of the number 11 (2011) corresponds with this. “Therefore, the very basic and primary understanding of the Number One is that of new beginnings and purity. When we see this digit doubled as with the 11 – then these attributes double in strength. In numerology the number 11 represents: Higher ideals, Invention, Refinement, Congruency, Balance, Fulfillment and Vision.” And here I find myself on the first day of 2012 looking forward towards what may come this year. Again, I look at the meaning of the number 12 to see what its meaning may hold for me. “The number 12 is believed to be the number of strength, conviction, absoluteness and finality. Of all the numbers, 12 is attached with beliefs of mystery and authority. Giving more substance to the belief of the number being authoritative, jury is usually made of 12 judges. Even the human heart chakras are 12 in number. While 12 noon is the descent of the Sun, 12 midnight is the ascent marking the turn of events as well. 2012 is attached with a transformation of the world as per the Mayan calendar.” On this day, the first day of 2012, I spent the morning helping interview Jagrup Brar, an MLA here in BC who is going to live on welfare for the month of January. This means he will be living on $610 for an entire month. Out of this he will pay $400 for rent, $25 for a cell phone, and $42 for bus tickets. This leaves him less than $4/day for food, laundry and any other things he may need. I was introduced to the downfalls of the welfare system by a friend who recently has gone through hard times. She is living on welfare which does not even cover her rent of $800/month and so she may be facing eviction as she was not able to pay her full rent in December. Merry Christmas. As someone who grew up in middle income Canada and was never faced with the hardships of being low income, losing my job or even knowing others in that situation I am learning so much. I was born in the 60′s and even though it is a cliché, times were different back then. My father owned a business and made a typical middle income living of approximately $30 000/ year in the 70′s and 80′s. That income was able to allow my mom to stay home, we owned a nice home on a 1/3 acre lot with a pool, owned a car (sometimes 2) and went on a trip every other year. These days a family income of $80 000 / year in the lower mainland of BC barely pays the bills, let alone affords a vacation or saving for a down payment on a home or saving for retirement. Times they are changing. Mr Brar will be speaking to people who are living on welfare month after month without hope of that changing. Many of these people are trying hard to find a job but often can’t even afford the transportation to get to the job interview. He will be living side by side with them for 31 days, going hungry, living in a cheap accommodation, and struggling with welfare lineups and public transportation. It is so much easier to be blind to the sadness and difficulties of people around me, but I can no longer do that. My friend grew up just like me – middle income. This can happen to any of us and I know it can happen to me. I am a single dad myself and pay an average amount in bills just to live every month. I am only one pay cheque away from not being able to afford my home at any given time. I have 4 children and do not live extravagantly. The home is 1700 sq feet with 3 bedrooms and no new furniture. And I am one of the lucky ones. Funny enough I work at a bank and so I am well acquainted with the difficulties of average ordinary families who are all struggling to get by. In so many cases there is no extra money to put towards savings. People are struggling just to pay the bills. The gap between the rich and the poor is getting bigger and the middle class is disappearing. Yet in the emerging markets of Brazil, India and China a new middle class is growing. What does all this mean to us? I was impressed with Mr Brar. He seemed sincere and genuine and wants to meet the people on the street and the working poor – not just meet them but get to know them and their struggles and help this province work towards a solution. Another area that was brought to my unwanted attention this year was another government organization known as MCFD – The Ministry of Children and Family Development. Prior to June 2011, I thought people who’s children were removed from them were people who had legitimate problems and issues and could not cope with having their children, or that the kids were abused in some way. Like many I trusted our government system to take care of me and those around me. I never thought that my children could be at risk of being removed and I did not personally know anyone who’s kids had been. Then I met someone who is a single parent. He had 3 children who were 100% in his care. The mother lived in another province and had drug and alcohol issues. The mother reported a lie to MCFD about him and one day they simply came in and removed the kids from his care and placed them in a foster home. He fought this in court and after spending thousands of dollars in legal fees got his kids back but they were then removed twice more from allegations from the mother. Through his case and hearing others like it my eyes were opened to a horrible world based on greed and of course money. Even our government who are elected for the people by the people is only interested in one thing and that is money. Removing a child from a home pays many people from the foster parents, to getting funding for centers, to paying social workers and down the line. The welfare of the child is not at the forefront and it is the children and the natural parents that suffer while others profit. This is not my world. Would I rather stay ignorant to the suffering and challenges going on all around me? Sometimes, YES. My entire paradigm is being challenged. How could I not have seen this? I am in my 40′s and lived in small towns and large cities including Toronto. My ex helped out with a street mission feeding the homeless and we often had drug addicts and street people in our home and yet even with that, I assumed that that was them and this was me. I did not think I could ever be like them. Those who had their children removed must have been for a valid reason right? MCFD wouldn’t come in and remove for no reason, would they? I can no longer pretend ignorance. I know personally 3 children who’s lives have been destroyed and turned upside down because of wrongful removal. I know personally a parent who cries for his children every night and just spent Christmas without them and yet he is helpless against the system. I can no longer stand by idly and live in my ignorance. How can this be going on right under my nose? Not just my nose but the noses of millions of people like me. People who are financially living quiet lives of desperation, wondering how they will pay their bills. People who are doing okay and can’t believe that the system of government that they voted in (or did they not take the time to go vote?) is ruining the family structure right in front of them. Like me, maybe they just don’t see it. And what about things like wi-fi and smart meters? Have you seen the new cell towers going up all around us? Did you know the damage that the radioactivity this can cause to our children is now scientifically proven? Is the convenience of wireless internet, cell phones, wireless remotes for the Xbox, cordless phones, and now smart meters worth our health and the future health consequences to our children? There are groups out there spending their lives to fight this and other causes and most of us prefer to just stay home and watch TV, or read a book. We get up, go to work, come home and hope and pray that our pay cheque will cover the bills and allow our kids some kind of lifestyle that resembles abundance and joy. What is your cause? Can we afford to wear rose -coloured spectacles any more? Next time you see a homeless person on the street, think about what it took to get them there. Could that be you one day? When you see a child in foster care, ask yourself how far away are you really from that being your child? Do you know that all it takes is a “concerned citizen” to call in and say that they heard you yelling at your kids or the sound of a slap and they can come take your kids without proving anything? What about the things that are happening all around us that we are not even told about, like the effects of radiation from wi-fi and cell phones? Why is our own government not protecting and informing us about these things? The simple answer is MONEY and IGNORANCE. We are all guilty of ignorance on some level until it is your sister or cousin or neighbour that suffers and then you have a choice to make. I choose to not remain ignorant any longer. I will do my part to change this province, this country, and this world in which I live and raise my children in. What do you choose? Middle Income Me
