A Change in Government Policy

From Chris Van Dyke, a single father who went public about rules that prevented him and other low income British Columbians from subsidized, affordable eyeglasses. Just four months after the story aired the Ministry of Social Development announced changes in the works that would allow families on income assistance to purchase eyeglasses online and claim the expense:

"I compliment the minister and the Liberal Party for expeditiously tweaking legislation to allow low-income clients access to purchase their eye-wear and lenses online. This will allow them lower costs and better quality eyewear, therefore improving their quality of life. I wish also to thank Go Public for the service they serve society and the public to prod such change and expose things that otherwise are hidden away from most of the public's awareness."
