The long and short of it



CAPTION: This sign is popping up in social agency storefronts and front lawns of churches and homes in the Welland, Port Colborne and Pelham areas. The initiative is sponsored by the Social Planning Network of Ontario and seeks to make poverty issues a high priority for voters, politicians and parties in the Ontario election campaign. Bridges Community Health Centre, 177 King St., Port Colborne, is a local outlet for the signs and other information about the meaning and importance of a Poverty Free Ontario. Pictured here are signs outside St. David’s Anglican Church, Thorold Road and the Parish Community of St. Kevin, Niagara Street, both in Welland. (Photos by Joe Barkovich)
