These cuts effect all of us, but note the cuts to organizations of particular significance to Canadian women and feminists; i.e. the Court Challenges Programme, which severely affected LEAF (The Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund), Status of Women Canada, Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, the Law Commission of Canada, Work Equity/Employment Equity Programme and Status of Women which was eliminated altogether.  There are others.

Edited for errors.  Twice!  Sooorrrry, something wrong here tonight.
