|Campaign2000 Letter to Premiers|
On the agenda for the Council of the Federation Meeting, July 20-22, 2011
Excerpt from Campaign 2000 letter to Premiers.
"Last year, Campaign 2000, the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg, the Canadian Council on Social Development and the Council of Canadians with Disabilities called on all Premiers to honour their responsibilities and include an action plan for poverty eradication on the agenda of the Council of the Federation. We submitted “The Provincial and Territorial Road to Poverty Eradication: Statement of the Winnipeg Roundtable to the Council of the Federation” that was endorsed by a wide range of organizations from coast to coast to coast. The Statement reflects the widespread demands of Canadians that the federal, provincial and territorial governments work together to address poverty in Canada, rather than blaming each other for doing little or nothing."
