New face of poverty

We hear from two people involved in battling poverty from the frontlines. Cyril Morgan, executive director of the Welcome Hall Mission in Montreal, talks to Host Bernard St-Laurent about the new people coming to their shelter and food bank.

Marc de Koninck who's a social worker and heads the social development committee of Centraide in the Quebec-Chaudière-Appalaches region talks about the misconceptions people have about the poor.

And we hear from a caller who is now struggling to make ends meet. Ten years ago he would never have thought he'd be here.
