Response to Federal budget / Réponse au budget fédéral

We wrote our response to the federal budget in hopes to highlight the fact that no, it wasn’t a feminist budget, Justin, far from it. Some of the items we talked about were:

  • The lack of benchmarks to track progress
  • The need for national affordable childcare
  • The far too long wait for clean drinking water, considering its a basic human right
  • The lack of new funds for first nations child and family services program
  • and the need for funding for a National Strategy to Address Gender-Based Violence
