OTTAWA – Indigenous children in Canada are over two and a half times more likely to live in poverty than non-Indigenous children, according to a study released today by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) and Save the Children Canada.
A new study by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) argues that, without change in public policy, it’ll take Canada 228 years to close its yawning gender gap.
The study, titled Closing Canada’s Gender Gap, examined Canada’s progress in closing the gap between men and women over the past two decades. It found that at the current pace, the gap will close long after most of us a dead – in 2240.

Admirers and detractors of Margaret Thatcher can agree that she will be remembered as one of the key political architects of our times. Along with her soulmate, U.S. President Ronald Reagan, she broke decisively with the post-war Keynesian welfare state and ushered in the still-enduring age of neo-liberalism.
Perhaps most notably, Lady Thatcher abandoned the goal of full employment in favour of price stability; explicitly worked to undermine the bargaining power of once-strong trade unions; and privatized or eliminated dozens of crown corporations and regulatory agencies.
