The Face of Poverty Consultation

"Poverty is increasing and the gap between the rich and poor is widening. Poverty is not an inevitable part of the human social condition. It does not affect only 'the disadvantaged.' Poverty is not the result of not working hard enough. Poverty is policy created and policy maintained." The Face of Poverty Consultations is an inter-faith group fighting poverty and is circulating a petition calling on the government of Nova Scotia to enact the recommendations of the all-party standing committee on Community Services.
