Already, there are splits in Iggy’s Liberal caucus. Two Newfoundland and Labrador Members of Parliament are threatening to oppose the federal budget unless there are amendments. This is a result of constituent action.
If women are a constituency, then it makes sense that Canadian women contact the Liberal critic responsible for the status of women, Anita Neville, because the budget fails women in a huge way:
- continues the attack on pay equity in the civil service
- provides no support to the working poor or those living in poverty
- does nothing to provide desperately-needed childcare supports
- provides stimulus to male-dominated areas of the economy, further ghettoizing the “pink ghetto“
Mention any and all of these (& more) in your communications with the Liberal MP, Hon. Anita Neville (Winnipeg South Centre):
Parliament Hill Office
Unit D – 729 Corydon Avenue,
Telephone: (204) 983-1355
Fax: (204) 984-3979
I mean, really, what century is this, anyway?
