About Raise the Rates
RAISE THE RATES is a coalition of community groups and organizations concerned with the level of poverty and homelessness in British Columbia.
I live in Squamish with my wife Mairi, I am a retired surgeon, now working as an Executive Medical Director in Fraser Health. I am concerned about poverty reduction through a more progressive tax structure, free daycare, and early childhood education. Taking the Welfare Food Challenge will increase my awareness of the effect of poverty on food security and through social media I hope to have an opportunity to spread that awareness.
