News NDP sounding off on SAMS failure SHARE ON: Taylor Ablett, staff Wednesday, Feb. 11th, 2015 The Liberals are clearly not fixing problems they have created for people who use social assistance. That’s what the NDP Community and Social Services critic Cindy Forster is saying. Forster is referring to the failing computer system which is supposed to manage welfare cases. SAMS cost nearly $250M. The Liberals have admitted the failure, but it isn’t enough says Forster. She says immediate solutions are needed. There is a protest in South Porcupine tomorrow over the failed program. It’s happening at 12:30 pm outside of the government complex.
