The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives launched its 2017 Alternative Federal Budget, High Stakes, Clear Choices
, yesterday. This year's AFB focuses on creating jobs, reducing income inequality, lowering poverty levels, closing unfair and expensive tax loopholes, and getting the economy moving. The AFB also sets a path for 100% renewable energy generation by 2050 that creates green jobs and protects the climate, water and public health.
With the federal budget launch scheduled for March 22, World Water Day, this is an important time to learn what the Trudeau government must do to protect water and implement the human rights to water and sanitation.
