From the Standing Committee on the Status of Women

Here’s one little tidbit from The Impacts of Funding and Program Changes at Status of Women Canada

In a brief submitted to the Committee, members of the External Committee on the Policy Research Fund stated that the program had excellent value for money with only five staff members. They believed that the elimination of the Fund would increase “the risk of seeing new policies being based on ’yesterday’s ideas.’ In their briefs, many organizations, including the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women (GAATW), described the importance of the Policy Research Fund for research on women’s issues. The Alliance believed that eliminating the Fund would produce “a loss in terms of historical understanding of women’s equality movements, research and advocacy collaborations in our country.”

But the Harperites don’t care about that, do they?

The “New” Government of Canada is nothing but sexist old boys with old sexist ideas. They really need to be retired!

  1. I read the drivel from the dissenting Con-MP, Joy Smith. Supposedly SWC has a better website now, so they don’t need regional offices, or some such nonsense.

    I’d like to read the brief provided by REAL Women.
