Unions Stepping up to the Plate that Harper Hopped Off

There is hope.

Ottawa—Several major unions are stepping forward to give financial support to women’s organizations that have been punished under the Conservative government’s anti-equality agenda. Their announcement coincides with the 26th anniversary of Canada’s ratification of the UN Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women.
“This government’s decision to stop funding research and advocacy by women’s organizations was short sighted, and our unions will continue to push for its reversal,” says John Gordon, Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) National President. “In the meantime, it’s imperative these groups stay alive.”

Via Rabble.

Yes it is. And shame on Harper and his attack on women's groups. We will rise... we have to.
