Ontario, Canada is planning to give residents a regular monthly allowance for living expenses regardless of working status, an idea that is already under consideration in Finland and the Netherlands.

We take a look at Canada’s “basic income” experiment on the Lip News with Jo Ankier and Margaret Howell.
