After months of open houses and gathering information, politicians, front line workers, business owners and those living in poverty have gathered at the Trade and Convention Center. By tomorrow afternoon, they hope to emerge with the final wording of what will make up the Poverty Reduction Initiative. Premier Shawn Graham says in order for this to be successful, all involved must get involved.

Premier Graham applauds Social Services Minister Kelly Lamrock for challenging the status quo of social assistance. A news conference is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon to release details of the conference.
