Four Lindsay, Ont., residents in the province’s recent basic income pilot project have filed a $200-million class-action lawsuit against the Ontario PC government over its early cancellation of the project.
Filed in Lindsay court, the lawsuit alleges the cancellation of the project amounts to a “breach of contract” after the previous Liberal government introduced the $150-million, three-year pilot in April 2017.
The lawsuit lists Dana Bowman, Grace Marie Doyle Hillion, Susan Lindsay and Tracey Mechefske as the plaintiffs.
