I think Shiaa Islam is the most strict; Sunni Islam is strict but not as strict as Shiaa

It was a perfect way of connecting his message to the audience in a way that they could best receive it - he was so effective at making it resonate

What was the name of Malcolm’s book? Was it similar to Dr. King’s in messaging?

Guaranteed income - took for COVID-19 for the government of Canada to implement Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB). Seems like this is helping out a lot of people
Rachel Decoste

Fun fact: the USA flirted seriously with the idea of Universal Basic Income... during the Nixon years.
Elaine
01:23:57
Rachel - how come it didn't happen?
Rachel Decoste
01:24:36
It was discussed and never implemented. Just the fact that it was discussed in the White House is shocking to me. Nixon was a staunch Republican.
Richard Sharpe
01:24:45
Yes. A Universal Basic Income would benefit our society, economy and get a majority of panhandlers off the streets. It must be something we move towards since many of the jobs that have disappeared will not come back.

Maybe Doug Ford will consider reinstating the basic income pilot project in Ontario he ended when he came into power. BC is in the process of looking at implementing a basic income for the province.
Elaine

Didn't we have a test run in Ontario under the Liberals for and when Doug Ford got into power, he got rid of it
Elaine
01:26:54
Kusum yes, I think we to definitely have a discussion on that
Richard Sharpe
01:27:03
Yes Ford killed it.

I know my son is benefiting from the CERB- as a young black man, who lost his part time job with the City recreation department and was attending College full time. I have heard from his friends who are also benefiting. Great discussion to have on continuing some of the initiatives that King and Malcolm wanted to pursue.
