Let's end poverty in Calgary
Post Date: Tuesday, October 25, 2016
Today, Mayor Nenshi joined with hundreds of Calgarians to launch the Enough for All campaign. We must fight poverty in Calgary because the facts are distressing:
- 127,000 Calgarians live in poverty, or 1 in 10
- 1 in 5 Calgarians are concerned about not having enough money for food
- 1 in 3 Calgarians are concerned about not having enough money for housing
- 48% (nearly half!) of Canadians would struggle with financial obligations if their paycheck was delayed by one week
