On Tuesday, November 13th Western Lifeline, an anti-choice group based at Western Ontario (UWO), will host a talk with Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth. Woodworth is infamous for his hardline, anti-choice views on abortion.
From SEIU Canada:
When the Harper government paroged parliament in order to "re-calibrate" the impression this left was that there would be a fervent of activity in the government ranks, experimenting and challenging themselves to push Canadians through to the other side of the recession. But when they did table the budget the catch phrase most used to describe it was, 'staying the course'. The operating budgets for federal departments would be frozen at the 2010-11 levels through 2013, while a review of program expenses would leave no stone unturned, and no expense spared.
Anyone who's ever tried to qualify for unemployment benefits in Canada since 1996 knows that it's a huge scam. The hundreds of dollars taken off our paychecks never make it back into our pockets - or those of our fellow workers.
Still, it's madding to see how much we're being robbed of on a national level.
The way I see it that's $54 BILLION dollars that the state stole from us and we need to take it back.
Remember that when a politician tells you that they can't fund social programs like health-care, public transit, or build social housing and call them the liars and thieves that they are.
