Poor People’s Radio

Out front of the Vancouver CBC Annual Food Bank fundraiser, Raise the Rates set up a Poor People’s Radio program after the public broadcaster’s security blocked low-income members of the public from entering their open-house.


This is the audio from the 44 minute broadcast of Poor People’s Radio. It features voices of community members currently living on social assistance who have had to rely on food banks because the welfare rates are so low.
