Episode 3 of 24. A reading from the book Policies of Exclusion, Poverty & Health: Stories from the front. Compiled, with Introduction and Reports by Chrystal Ocean. Copyright 2005.
Anna was born in St. Lucia, spent much of her childhood in poverty and from the age of 15 began life as an illegal alien in Canada. Anna is uniquely positioned to draw certain comparisons and she challenges the notion that people in North America who live at the bottom income level don't - or can't - know what 'real' poverty is.
