Liberal Party leader, Mr. Stephane Dion, presented a speech today at the Learning Enrichment Foundation in Toronto, ON. The speech was titled: Towards a Fairer Canada Without Poverty.
This speech comes after an invite from The Canadian CED Network for a dialogue with community members about developing a policy framework on poverty reduction.
Following the speech today, Dion will be joining CCEDNet board members and representatives for a roundtable discussion on developing a community-based poverty reduction plan for Canadians.
The Canadian CED Network will be inviting leaders and representatives from all of Canada’s political parties to partake in similar roundtable discussions across Canada.
