Support the Report -- Help Make a Breakthrough on Poverty in Canada

Last week I posted about the Poverty Free Waterloo Region petition. One of the items on that petition is a call for the Federal Government to implement a strategy to eradicate poverty in Canada.

There has been movement at the Federal level. Recently the Human Resources Committee (HUMA) released a report calling for a Federal poverty reduction strategy. Karri Munn-Venn from Citizens for Public Justice gives a brief summary of that report on the CPJ website. There is something you can do to support the call for a federal plan to end poverty in Canada.

Visit Make Poverty History and send a message to Minister Diane Finley, the Minister for Human Resources and Skills Development to respond positively to the recommendations in the HUMA report. Your message will also be forwarded to you MP.
