Today the Nova Scotia Action Coalition for Community Well-Being is launching a new video campaign. The Policy Not Charity Campaign calls on Nova Scotians to make different political choices and to elect politicians who have the courage to implement progressive public policy to end poverty.

Judy Haiven about a Liberal announcement on its health platform. “While Rankin had about 12 people in his camp, including his manager, a campaign team and a van with several men, there were also two women in wheelchairs and about a 15 people holding homemade signs demanding action on housing for people with disabilities.”

41,370 children, one in four, live in poverty in Nova Scotia. For children under six that number is actually almost one in three! Educators for Social Justice want child poverty to get the attention it deserves during the election campaign and at the voting booth.
