Ontario needs a balanced approach to fiscal sustainability and commitment to poverty eradication

MCCO recently wrote to Finance Minister Dwight Duncan with recommendations for the 2012 Provincial Budget.  Our submission emphasizes the need to balance fiscal restraint with smart social investments, ongoing commitment to caring for creation, fostering community safety and considering ways to raise more revenue based on the principle of fiscal fairness.
Part of MCCO’s Budget submission is based on our response to the Social Assistance Review Commission’s second discussion paper. That letter underscores the need to redesign and revision income security with the goal of eradicating poverty in Ontario.
You can send your own message to the Provincial Government through Make Poverty History's recent Ontario provincial budget action: Let's create an Ontario that doesn't put people into poverty.
Finance Minister Dwight Duncan will release the 2012 Provincial Budget on Tuesday, March 27.
