M-P Says Low Cost Internet Will Be Transformational

Saint John-Rothesay MP Wayne Long says offering low cost internet to those families in public housing will transform lives.

Long says it was a real eye opener for him when he recently went door to door in Crescent Valley and quickly discovered many families did not have access to the internet because they couldn`t afford it.

It's hoped having access to the internet at home will level the playing field at school for young people from low income households.

Long, who has made it his mission to reduce poverty in the riding, says another step forward to achieving that is the enhanced child care benefit.
