York Region Food Network Invites You to POOR NO MORE Movie Events: Solutions to Canada’s Working Poor

York Region Food Network (YRFN) in Ontario, Canada, is hosting three screenings with discussions of POOR NO MORE and its solutions to Canada’s working poor as well as the hope offered to those who have to work two jobs a day and to those who cannot even find work.

The York Region Food Network flyer above reads as follows:

POOR NO MORE

Hosted by TV and film star
Mary Walsh

Poor No More offers solutions to Canada’s working poor.

The film takes three Canadians to a world where people do not have to beg, where housing is affordable and university education is free.

They ask themselves: if other countries can do this, why don’t we?

Poor No More offers an engaging look at Canadians stuck in low paying jobs with no security and no future.

Mary then takes us on a journey to Ireland and Sweden so we can see how these countries have tackled poverty while strengthening their economies.

The film offers hope to those who have to work two jobs a day and to those who cannot even find work.

“I just loved the film and would like to congratulate you on how you tackled the complex question of the “how” we got into this situation in Canada. The blending of personal stories and expert commentaries was brilliant.”
Dominique Paris-MacKay, Overbrooke-Forbes Community
