Ken Boessenkool, a native of Alberta, was once described as "an election strategist and policy chef who lurks around conservative parties everywhere in Canada.” True to form, Ken recently came up with the idea of a Crisis Basic Income - a temporary universal basic income that could be taxed back from wealthier people next year - to respond to COVID-19.
