Welfare Cuts Hurting Families and Children

Thousands of poor families and children have to make due with far less money since the Campbell Liberals took power in British Columbia. A report released last month by End Legislated Poverty studied client and caseload statistics for the Ministry of Human Resources from March to July 2002 to determine how policy changes have affected families by cuts to welfare and the child care subsidy. End Legislated Poverty's August 2002 report is available on the net (in PDF.)
