NDP Opposition Budget Hearing on Vancouver I...sland: The Environment, Fairness between Generations and Acting for the Public Good

Wednesday May 23rd, 11:00pm - Thursday May 24th, 1:00am
First Metropolitan United Church - Fellowship Hall - 932 Balmoral St. Victoria, BC

Let’s talk about what’s hidden in the Conservative ‘Trojan Horse’ Budget Implementation Bill C-38 and how it will affect your lives and the lives of your children.
The New Democratic Official Opposition is hosting regional budget hearings across the country from May 22nd... - May 25th. We want to hear your thoughts on the recent Omnibus Budget Bill and share with you information about the many harmful, non-budget measures hidden in the massive 425-page bill.

Vancouver Island MPs Denise Savoie (Victoria), Randall Garrison (Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca) and Jean Crowder (Nanaimo-Cowichan) invite you to a discussion on the Budget's impact on you and on Vancouver Island’s communities.

One third of Bill C-38, the federal budget bill, has repercussions for the environment. Gutting the environmental assessment regime for the proposed Enbridge pipeline and all future large energy projects has a direct impact on future generations, as do changes to eligibility for Old Age Security and employment insurance, food inspections, health-care and services for a new generation of veterans. Is this government acting for the public good?
