LETTER: Trying to end child poverty
End child poverty
That’s horrible that so many children in BC live in poverty. In a country this affluent, nobody should be in poverty. Kootenay Kids Society is doing a good thing.
In order to solve this problem, maybe they should take it to the next level. Kootenay Kids Society should expand what they do to also lobby to end child poverty. Similar to how Citizens Climate Lobby lobbies the federal government about environmental issues, Kootenay Kids Society could lobby for policies that eliminate child poverty in BC and maybe the rest of Canada.
Imagine every outraged parent meeting with their MP and demanding that they end child poverty. Imagine what amazing things we could do as a community.
