The biggest flaw on the system, would be that system does not screen out the peeps that actually have money to buy their own goods, food and things. ( they can get their entertainment all by themselves but not food) hhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmm

Not enough policing . The system cannot afford to pay the number of monitors necessary to police the program. However maybe they can't afford not to pay more for monitoring.

I think the greatest flaw of our welfare system is its inability to get these people off the system as soon as possible and into the workforce. There is no pride in living off of welfare.
I agree that rates should be low as to discourage abuse.

I think accountability needs to be fixed on both sides of this spectrum; consumer (citizen) as well as provider (exchequer).

The system is like a drug. Once you are hooked on it, it is very difficult to come clean. There are even penalties for "excess income". There should be rewards for people who get out there, and reduced support for those physically and emotionally able to work. Actual assistance not just a check every two weeks. Meld social assistance with unemployment cut down government jobs get people back on their feet.

It is too easy for people to take advantage of the program. More effort should be put into ensuring these people are trying to improve their lives to eventually not need the assistance. And if they do not try, they should no longer be supported.

FRAUD! people rip off the system. Because of that, here in BC, where we have the highest cost of living across CANADA, we have the lowest rates. Thanks to Christie Clark. The premiere of BC. RAISE THE RATES. let people live with dignity! No one can survive on $375/month for housing! That won't even get you a SRO, in the downtown east side! If you are able to get an SRO, your constantly stepping over junkies, needles, condoms, (used ones at that) and having crack heads, lurking around. The government could care less, about people with disabilities. No one ever says, "when I grow up, I want to be disabled"!
