One Million Too Many: Implementing Solutions to Child Poverty in Canada

Campaign 2000 has released the 2004 Report Card on Child Poverty in Canada. Entitled One Million Too Many: Implementing Solutions to Child Poverty in Canada (in PDF), this 12 page report states: "On the fifteenth anniversary of the Canadian Parliament's vow to end child poverty, 1,065,000 children, or nearly one in six of Canada's children, still remain in poverty. Not only is Canada's record on child poverty actually worse than it was in 1989, Canada's rate of poverty jumped for the first time in 2002, following five straight years of decline."
