i'm laughing my ASS off over here. some brilliant mo-fo decided to start stealing bilboards and selling the scrap metal, ha ha! with the price of metal these days, not to mention the amount of eye pollution all over the goddamn place, it's a worthwhile pursuit. i want to say "ooh, stealing, so bad!" but all i can think is "Right ON!!"
fuking funny man. jam that culture good.

I know it's only rock 'n' roll. But I like it.

pepper, it will depend on what your province does in the aftermath of the childcare transfer cancellation. What I know right now is that it's estimated 33,000 currently funded child care spaces will be lost by the feds not following through on the promise of child care.

In BC, the province had promised to release a provincial Childcare Action Plan on January 31. Now we're told not to expect a plan anytime soon. The BC Budget doesn't include any provincial funding to cover the loss of federal childcare dollars, and without the federal money, it's expected that childcare fees will go up and subsidies will be cut...and families on wait lists will not be able to get a new childcare space.

Probably the best idea is to get in touch with your province's child care advocacy group and find out what it means in your province.

Once you know - even though you've signed and forwarded petitions - please consider writing a personal letter, outlining your own story and how you will be affected. Giving the opposition parties personal stories of how individual families are directly impacted by government policy is VERY important, because it gives them an opportunity to talk beyond the numbers and put a human face on the issue.

erinjane, I work in a community women's centre, rather than a campus one, but I know some of the work is the same. Three of my board are heavily involved in trying to get a campus women's centre at Thompson Rivers University (formerly University College of the Cariboo), though. It's actually looking promising at this point! :-)
