PWD recipients to get bus pass supplement back
About 110,000 persons with disabilities will be getting access to money for a bus pass again.
The province has announced 52 dollars will be on the monthly assistance payments as a transportation supplement beginning on the December 20th monthly assistance payments.
In 2016 the Liberal government raised assistance payments for people with disabilities by 77 per month, but started charging 52 per month for a monthly bus pass.

It is expected the move will cost government about 70 million dollars annually.
