Let’s get something straight: Despite what you may have seen in the news, the Liberal Party of Canada is not going to implement a universal basic income (UBI), or a guaranteed annual income, or a guaranteed basic income, or a “Canadian basic income,” as the backers of a resolution going before the party’s convention in November are calling it. Liberals are reportedly discussing it in this week’s cabinet retreat in Ottawa. But they’re not going to announce it in the throne speech; they’re not going to roll it out later in their second term; and they’re not going to do it even if they get re-elected to a third term on an explicit promise to do it. If you are indulging any thoughts to the contrary, you need to smarten up.
