Canada Without Poverty is pleased to forward the link to a great short article by the eminent Ed Broadbent, titled “The Rise and Fall of Economic and Social Rights: What’s Next?”, recently published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.  The article


He has committed his life to the advancement of human rights. He’s watched Canada move from a “sharing and caring” society to the “new barbarism.”  Now Ed Broadbent comes out swinging.

In this article based on his address to the Congress of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences on May 29th, the former leader of the NDP summarizes the journey of generations and issues a challenge to today’s leaders: stop ignoring the threat of rising inequality, tackle poverty, and show Canadians your progress.
