Progress made on outdated system Re:First Nations children – The Star

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Progress made on outdated system

May 09, 2008 04:30 AM

Re:First Nations children
Editorial, May 7

I agree with aboriginal leaders who say the 20-year-old funding formula used by our child and family services program needs to be updated. Our government believes that prevention-focused changes are required. Funding has increased dramatically under our government. Investments under the Liberals stood at $193 million in 1996-’97, while in 2006-’07, we committed $450 million. And the federal budget has committed an additional $43 million over two years to continue to improve child and family services on reserves.

On small Cormorant Island just off the coast of northeast Vancouver Island people of the Namgis tribe are turning to a modern equivalent of their traditional diet. As with many native populations consuming the Western diet rapidly puts the population at risk for diet-related diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Poverty input ignored – Peterborough Examiner

Poverty input ignored
Re “Behind closed doors” (May 6) –

Before 1995 welfare payments in Ontario were barely adequate. When Mike Harris came into power, he slashed those benefits by 21.6 per cent, so that people no longer had enough money to cover even food and shelter. Thirteen years later, that pittance has been further eroded by inflation, and it is estimated that a 40-per-cent increase is needed to get back to where we were. The McGuinty government has given a mere five per cent increase in two stages, while expressing active concern about poverty levels in Ontario.
