The 2011 budget threatens to cut more funding from social services, in order to pay for fighter jets and the endless war in Afghanistan. The new fighter jets the government intends to purchase are estimated to cost $30 billion, which could provide $1000 to every person in Canada, or cover the entire annual federal health care budget. Meanwhile there is growing poverty and hunger in our community and across the county. Join a community forum to discuss what the budget priorities could be.
