CCPA reaction to 2012 federal budget

The Canadian Centre of Policy Alternatives believes that all Canadians will pay the price for a federal budget that will result in significant job losses, weaker environmental protection, and unnecessary cuts to cherished public services. Once the government’s three rounds of spending cuts are fully implemented, they will have resulted in a total of over 70,000 full-time job cuts (35,000 in the public sector and 37,000 in the private sector) and could raise the unemployment rate to 7.8%. Read the CCPA’s full press release here.
