Having been forewarned about the possibility of being blacklisted by the FSIN, I wasn’t surprised at its decision to ban StarPhoenix reporter Betty Ann Adam from attending Tuesday’s press conference. However, I was extremely disappointed that the FSIN would carry out such a petulant threat to shoot the messenger rather than simply having the fortitude to come clean and explain their highly questionable decision to reinstate David Ahenakew.

2007 REPORT CARD on Child and Family Poverty in Ontario

Campaign 2000 has released the 2007 Report Card on Child and Family Poverty, revealing that 18 years after the 1989 all-party resolution of the House of Commons, the child poverty rate is exactly the same. Despite a growing economy, a soaring dollar and low unemployment, Statistics Canada data show:

THE ROAD AHEAD: POVERTY REDUCTION IN ONTARIO

• 1 in 8 children in Ontario – 345,000 — live in poverty when income is measured after taxes. Before income taxes, 1 in every 6 children lives in poverty.

• A job is not a guaranteed pathway out of poverty. 70% of all low-income children live in families with at least one parent working, parttime or full-time.
