May 1st Events and Call for a Poverty Reduction Plan

Dear Friends of SJS,
Victoria Friends of Cuba shared the following:




Call for a Poverty Reduction Plan:
from Michelle Mungall:

This Spring, I have some great news to share. To celebrate the end to the child support claw back, we’ve put together a video that shares the story of our hard work to make this happen. Watch the video here.

 

A year ago, I began bringing the stories of single parent families impacted by the child support clawback to the Legislature. Along with many non-profits, my New Democrat Caucus colleagues and families, I asked Premier Christy Clark to end the twelve year policy of clawing back children’s child support simply because their parents received income supports like Disability. We were a powerful force.

 

Less than a year later, we were successful. On February...

Let's Spill Harper before he spills on us!


Hey all you heavy-hearted lefties out there,

We are in the last weeks of our Mindbombs campaign, an initiative which harks all the way back to the birth of Adbusters. 25 years ago, determined to get on TV under the same rules and conditions as corporations do, we produced a series of provocative anti-ads and uncommercials like the burping pig Buy Nothing Day spot and the Economists Must Learn To Subtract! blast against the economics profession — all of which were rejected by major broadcast networks around the world.
