Low welfare rates, minimal childcare support and skyrocketing rents mean B.C. has one of the highest poverty rates in Canada. The B.C. Poverty Reduction is organizing a week of action to raise awareness about the issue in the lead-up to the provincial election in May. Trish Garner is with the B.C. Poverty Reduction Coalition. She speaks with Redeye host James Mainguy.
