'Magic unicorn land' coming to Canada

FORUM RECAP Is basic income a better way to deal with poverty?

One commenter says a universal basic income will only happen in 'magic unicorn land'.

Judging from the amount of news and official initiatives for a universal basic income in Canada, it could be that Canada will become a "magic unicorn land" soon. 

But, in reality, a universal basic income is already implemented in many places. See, for example, these:
Alaska: Protecting their citizen dividend (Bill HJR17 CONST AM: GUARANTEE PERM FUND DIVIDEND)
A US$23,000 citizen dividend? Yes, it has been happening for many years!
Macau: Yearly Cash for Residents.
Maria Sanchez Diez, “A Dutch city is giving money away to test the ‘basic income’ theory”
