Premier Christy Clark says British Columbia will welcome two homeless men from Saskatchewan after they say they were given one-way bus tickets to her province.
Clark says welcoming people without judgment is what being Canadian is all about.
Saskatchewan Social Services Minister Donna Harpauer says the case is being reviewed by her department.
She says frontline workers will be reminded clients should have a plan in place before they are given bus tickets to go to other cities.
The Saskatchewan N-D-P is accusing the government of tackling poverty by shipping people out of the province.
Statement from Social Services Minister Donna Harpauer:
I have had a conversation with Social Services Deputy Minister Greg Miller regarding reports that two young men were given bus tickets for out of province destinations by Social Service workers.
I reaffirmed to the Deputy Minister that regulations require a case plan be established by workers and clients before transportation be provided. The Deputy Minister is also reviewing if case plans were in place for these individuals and he will be reminding front line workers that clients should have a plan in place before they are given bus tickets for destinations away.
