Alternative Federal Budget 2004

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) released its 10th annual Alternative Federal Budget 2004: Rebuilding the Foundations. The budget offers an alternative way of accounting for our tax dollars and includes an investment of $3.8 billion a year toward early childhood education and care; dedicating $1 billion a year to create 75,000 new affordable housing units; and restoring the fair federal share of provincial and territorial of public health care expenditures by raising the federal cash transfer to 25 per cent. The Federal Alternative Budget 2004, in French and English is available on the CCPA website.
