To be perfectly frank, we have very mixed emotions about the video you’re about to watch. Is this how it begins? The robots trick us into letting our guard down by acting all cute and playful. Then the next thing you know, bam! Skynet becomes sentient and we’re battling real-life Terminators.

A basic income can take different forms but it is generally understood to ensure everyone an income that is sufficient to meet their basic needs, regardless of work status. This kind of income support enables seniors in Canada to live better lives and keep contributing to society and the economy. It has also improved the lives of working-age families with children for many years. It is now time to cover those left out — the working-age adults who are also family, friends and neighbours in the communities where our children and grandchildren are growing up.
