Landlords might gain right to seize welfare cheques

Quebec's Liberals suggested that Landlords may have the ability to take welfare checks away from tenants who are benhind on their rent payments. Many people are horrified by this suggestion. Many critics argue that it discriminatory against one group of tenants and suggest that if they want to solve the problem of tenants not paying their rent, the government should increase welfare payments and fund more social housing.
