Light a Flame for a Guaranteed Livable Income
In this video, Moderator Richard Bott invites you to join the call for a Guaranteed Livable Income and contact our Prime Minister and Minister of Finance. April 8 is a chance to make this call visible; plan to light a candle and post publicly on social media (#UCCanlivableincome) in solidarity with small outdoor vigils being held on Parliament Hill, at Minister Chrystia Freeland’s constituency office, and at other MP constituency offices.
Due to COVID-19, the vigils are restricted to locally designated individuals, and plans will be adjusted if needed. If you’d like to organize one, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Take a look at the GLI webpage for more information and worship resources, and read this new blog post. And sign up to receive updates—the Cross Canada GLI network of United Church leaders is eager to connect with you! Dr. Ernie Epp (email@example.com) is the GLI Network representative for the Canadian Shield Regional Council.
