To mark the return of the Spur Festival, currently on at various locations around the city, I'll be playing the recording of Building Community Wealth from Spur 2015. The best way to get something done is to lead by example and in 1974 that is exactly what the small town of Dauphin, Manitoba did. In order to eliminate poverty the city guaranteed a basic minimum income for all its residents and for five years Dauphin was poverty free. But just like that with a change in provincial and federal governments, the “Mincome” project was cancelled in 1979. Now, almost 40 years later, countries from the US to Switzerland are wondering if Dauphin was on to something. Hugh Segal, political strategist and former Conservative senator, joins Evelyn Forget, economist and professor in the department of community health sciences at the University of Manitoba and Ed Schreyer for a conversation about the politics and possibilities of overcoming poverty with a policy that guarantees a minimum income for all.
