CCPA releases its new 2014 Alternative Federal Budget today

Feb. 5, 2014 -- The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, a partner in Campaign 2000, released its 2014 Alternative Federal Budget.

The Alternative Federal Budget 2014: Striking a Better Balance shows what the federal government could do if it decided to seriously address Canadians’ largest social, economic, and environmental concerns. It delivers a plan that would lift 855,000 Canadians out of poverty, reduce income inequality, boost the economy, lower unemployment to 5.4%—and still balance the budget one year later than the federal government plan.

Specifically, it proposes to double the National Child Benefit Supplement (NCBS) in order to re­duce child poverty by 26% (Cost: $3.1 billion/year). So, you may want to comment on this and/or you may hear from the press in your communities. More: https://www.policyalternatives.ca/afb2014
