Abstract: ISSUE 10, a series published by the Division of Mission in Canada of the United Church, is a critical assessment of social concerns designed to strengthen discussion and action.
ISSUE 10, published a few years ago, provides basic background information on Canada's economic structure and the distribution of wealth and power among its citizens. Popular myths are debunked. For example, it is a fact that nearly half of those who are poor in Canada work for a living. The facts "force us to question the values that our society is built upon-a society which promises equality and human dignity and delivers proverty."
The ISSUE focuses upon individuals with "a firm base on which to stand in times of economic instability." The GAI is advocated as one portion of the development of long-range goals to eliminate poverty.
