(Website of the consultative committee in the strategy against poverty)

Site du Comité consultatif de lutte contre la pauvreté et l’exclusion sociale
(Website of the consultative committee in the strategy against poverty)

Note to English-only social researchers:
This site is currently available only in French.
The Comité consultatif is a public body whose role is to advise the Québec Minister responsible for the application of the Action Plan to combat poverty and social exclusion. This mission is similar to that of the National Council of Welfare (NCW) with respect to the Minister responsible for Human Resources and Social Development Canada, that is, to represent the interests of all Canadians in offering counsel to the HRSDC Minister in all matters relating to social development. Both the Comité consultatif and the NCW carry out evaluations and other studies, and they present their views and and recommendations
directly to the Minister responsible and also to the public. Both groups also monitor the social policies of their respective governments with a special focus on the impacts of new policies on the incidence of poverty and social exclusion.

I hope the site will be translated into English to share this information as widely as possible; in the meantime, here's where you'll find the French news release and website, if you have a working grasp of French or if you know how to use one of the free online translation services. Here are a few of those:

It's a bad time to be poor
May 31, 2007
On May 7, the Impact of the Olympics on Community Coalition released a report urging the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) and its partners–the City of Vancouver and the British Columbia provincial government–to live up to their so-called Inner-City Inclusivity commitments. These include commitments to housing, environment, civil liberties, and transparency.

3. The Feds Are Widening, Not Closing, the Prosperity Gap - May 31
(Canadian Policy Research Networks)

The Feds Are Widening, Not Closing, the Prosperity Gap (PDF file - 32K, 2 pages)
by David Hay
May 31, 2007
A recent Statistics Canada report revealed a growing gap between the rich and poor in this country. The report on income inequality and redistribution suggests that the labour market and specifically high-earning couples are the reason behind this. "A key driver of this is the rising earning power of the two-earner family, especially when both earners are highly educated" says the report. David Hay, CPRN's Director, Social Development, in his commentary on the Globe and Mail's Web site, has found an additional explanation for this growing divide between rich and poor. He writes that further examination of the report's tables reveals "…some other potential contributors to rising after-tax inequality, and these have more to do with governments than the labour market."

Canadian economic accounts, first quarter 2007 and March 2007
The economy picked up steam in the first quarter of 2007 as real gross domestic product advanced 0.9%, more than twice the pace of last quarter. A slight pick-up in consumer spending and an inventory build-up resulting from strengthened production fuelled the advance. Economic output was up 0.3% in March.

**************************************

Ten Things American Republicans* Believe


* Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery.

* Government should relax regulation of Big Business and Big Money but crack down on individuals who use marijuana to relieve the pain of illness.

* "Standing Tall for America" means firing your workers and moving their jobs to India.

* A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.

* If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.

* Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but Creationism should be taught in schools.

* Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

* A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

* Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

* Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

*(and some Canadian Conservatives...)
