    Green Party of SaskatchewanFor immediate release Child Poverty needs to end in Saskatchewan now Regina, Saskatchewan – A report released by Campaign 2000 and endorsed by Upstream reveals that child poverty is rising in Saskatchewan. Twenty five years after MPs voted unanimously to end child poverty in Canada by the year 2000, 25.5 percent of children in Saskatchewan or about 49,500 children in the province are living below the poverty line. This percentage is up from 25.1 percent in 1989. Upstream recently pointed out that child poverty is costing Saskatchewan an estimated $3.8-billion every year in lost economic opportunities and increased government services. Saskatchewan Green Party Leader Victor Lau says it is shameful that these children, who make up about 4.4 percent of Saskatchewan’s overall population, are being failed by all levels of government. “Children are our future,” says Lau. “If over a quarter of the children in Saskatchewan are living in poverty, what does that say about the future of our province?” Lau says these conditions need to be eliminated now, and that the most effective way to end poverty in Saskatchewan is through the launching of a universal Guaranteed Livable Income (GLI) for all Saskatchewan citizens. The GLI will be given to everyone regardless of income and no means testing will be required to quality for it. The Guaranteed Livable Income would replace social assistance and be phased in over four years to give every household an extra $1,000 per month in income. -30- For more information, please contact Victor Lau at (306)737-5345.

    Green Party of SaskatchewanFor immediate release Provincial Office for Seniors Advocacy is needed Regina, Saskatchewan – The Saskatchewan Green Party believes a Provincial Office for Seniors Advocacy on their specific issues is needed. This office should have the power to advocate for seniors issues, so it should be government funded but also at ‘arms-length’ from the government. Saskatchewan Greens Leader Victor Lau says issues such as housing and long-term care for senior citizens are important enough to demand a separate advocacy office. “The highest care should be provided to our elderly citizens, and this should be a top priority of the Wall Government,” says Lau. “The need for seniors to live in dignity during their final years should never again become a political issue in this province.” Lau also points out that with ‘baby boomers’ making up 24% of the Saskatchewan population, and the fact that this age group is now entering retirement in large numbers, the urgency for a seniors advocacy office is very real. This is not ‘creating drama’ but rather proposing a doable solution, says Lau. -30- For more information, please contact Victor Lau at (306)737-5345.

    Option NationaleC'était une fin de semaine historique pour Option nationale. Tant pour la qualité des débats que pour les grandes décisions qui ont été prises, notre troisième congrès national a été un autre beau succès. Merci pour ça. Nous avons la chance de compter sur des militants d'un dévouement qui défie toute commune mesure. On pense au comité organisateur constitué de Luc-Antoine Cauchon, Josianne Grenier et Robert Mailhot ainsi qu'au responsable des communications, Alexandre Boutet Dorval. Josianne Grenier partage également avec Sylvain Gauthier la direction générale et tous deux font un travail que toute personne normalement constituée ne supporterait pas bénévolement — à moins, comme c'est leur cas, d'être animés par une passion et une conviction qui relèvent de l'héroïsme. Au nom de tous les membres, merci.

    Option NationaleLes membres du congrès national s'apprêtent à se positionner sur une question cruciale : « Dans l'éventualité où un(e) candidat(e) de la course à la direction du Parti québécois propose d'orienter son parti dans une démarche d'accession à l'indépendance qui se rapproche suffisamment de l'article 1 de notre plateforme, une conférence nationale extraordinaire pourra être convoquée par le conseil d'administration pour décider si Option nationale appuiera la campagne de ce(tte) candidat(e) sur le terrain.»

    Nova Scotia NDPSeveral CEOs have written editorials now appearing in papers praising the tax review that that will mean people earning $60,000 will pay more tax and people earning $150,000 will pay less. If you would like to write a letter to the editor, here is some food for thought: The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives: The most regressive part of this package is arguably the recommendations to “eliminate the fifth income tax bracket (21% on earnings over $150,000); simplify the system by merging the third and fourth brackets, setting the rate at 17%.” This will mean the richest among us will get to keep $72 million annually in tax relief. http://behindthenumbers.ca/2014/11/19/nova-scotia-tax-review-eroding-tax-fairness/ The Canadian Union of Public Employees: "It's a regressive plan. The primary beneficiaries will be top income earners and corporations. Lower income families, the middle class and those depending on public services will lose out the most." http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/-1970049.htm The Nova Scotia Government Employees Union: “This report is a major step backwards for Nova Scotia that will work against the very economic and fiscal recovery which the government is seeking. How else can you describe an economic plan that proposes freezing program spending, moving away from a progressive tax system to increased consumption taxes, and tax breaks for higher income Nova Scotians and big business? This plan will adversely affect most Nova Scotians.” http://nsgeu.ca/nsgeu-response-to-broten-report/
