Shameful cuts to women’s group


Thank you for your coverage of the funding cuts to women. Given that women still (don’t earn as much as men), are raped, battered, trafficked (and) do 3/4 of the world’s work … it is shameful this government is gutting Status of Women Canada (SWC).

The amount of the federal budget that SWC received was miniscule, now it will be microscopic. This, in a year when there is a multi-billion dollar surplus.

Apparently, the Conservatives don’t seem aware that the majority of Canadians are women.
