Hunger woes show B.C. isn’t putting families first

Christy Clark is putting the wrong families – corporate ones – first

Re: Grants cut from program to feed needy kids (News)

The kids are already hungry and the provincial government is taking an apathetic role once again. Christy Clark says “families first.”  I guess she is only considering the corporate families.

It would be nice if B.C. could figure out how to not be on the top ten list of provinces with children living in poverty. Ten years as the No. 1 province with the highest child poverty rate in Canada.

Are they happy with this? Is that why they are continuing to make it 11 years? How can politicians sleep at night knowing that there are so many kids who are hungry?

I would love to know what their plans are to eliminate child hunger and child poverty.
