The federal government is not meeting its national responsibilities
towards children and seniors, not providing affordable housing,
health care or education. It is not protecting the environment or
contributing development assistance consistent with Canadian values
and international obligations.
In an effort to fight this trend, the Centre for Social Justice
launched the Vote for a Change campaign - a non-partisan, issues-based
campaign whose aim is to educate people to vote for politicians
who are willing to re-invest in Canada and re-invest in Canadians.
The listed speakers are part of this initiative. They can provide
your viewers and listeners with comprehensive and timely information
on why our federal government needs to concentrate on social infrastructure,
rather than buying votes.
