The Kootenay East NDP are hosting a screening of the documentary ‘Poor No More,’ 7 p.m. tonight (May 3) at the Arts Station in Fernie.

Hosted by TV and film star Mary Walsh, ‘Poor No More’ offers an engaging look at Canadians stuck in low paying jobs with no security and no future. Mary then takes us on a journey to Ireland and Sweden so we can see how these countries have tackled poverty while strengthening their economies. Mary says the documentary  offers hope to those who have to work two jobs a day and to those who can’t find work.

There is no charge for admission, but donations will be gratefully accepted .
