Cuts to Canadian Civil Society

Howard Ramos and James Ron
The 2012 federal budget has put Canada’s social justice groups on notice: the era of government-supported good deeds is over. Over the short term, many state-funded groups will shrink or disappear, while those that survive will lose their autonomy. If you care about critical thinking and social justice, this is bad news. Over the long term, however, the Conservatives may have done Canada a favour.”
