CCPA releases Alternative Federal Budget

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives has released its annual Alternative Federal Budget.  This year's AFB shows how growth-killing austerity can be replaced by a plan that strengthens the economy, leads to a better quality of life for all Canadians, and eliminates the deficit by 2016.

The Alternative Federal Budget shows what the federal government could do if it decided to seriously tackle Canadians' largest social, economic, and environmental concerns.

The CCPA has also released a report on Ontario's austerity measures, entitled More Harm than Good: Austerity's Impact in Ontario.
