Alternative Federal Budget 2012

Alternative Budget 2012

Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) has released its annual Alternative Federal Budget for 2012. This anti-austerity budget would:

  • Tackle poverty and income inequality by investing in public programs like education, affordable housing, public pensions, universal pharmacare, and national child care;
  • Get Canadians working again by creating jobs and lowering the unemployment rate;
  • Close tax loopholes for the wealthy, and put an end to the federal government’s failed corporate tax cut experiment;
  • Get serious about environmental leadership with a forward-looking green strategy;
  • Repair our cities and build sustainable communities with a long-term physical infrastructure program.
