Ottawa ACORN demands a stop to the ODSP income clawback

On Thursday, ACORN Ottawa held a protest outside the office of Liberal MPP Yasir Naqvi to eliminate the ODSP income clawback.

Under ODSP rules, recipients lose 50 cents for every dollar earned.

ACORN members David Thomasson and Kat Fortin spoke later that day by telephone about the issue.
