Leaders' debate and other interesting links

Good afternoon,

I thought I would share some interesting links.

Leaders' debate - Last night the CBC-Chronicle Herald leaders' debate aired on TV. The leaders responded to my question about women's services in Nova Scotia! You can see the whole thing here: http://www.cbc.ca/canada/nsvotes2009/debate/

The importance of funding women's groups -I was forwarded an excellent article the other day about the importance of funding women's groups. The article was written in September 2006 when the federal Harper government was aggressively attacking women's programs and organizations across the country. It's available at the National Association of Women and the Law (NAWL) website: http://www.nawl.ca/ns/en/Actions/act-swc.html

Facebook group - The Women and Girls Matter! Facebook group has 189 members, and new people are joining every day. If you are on Facebook, you can visit the group here: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=110348491419&ref=ts

Questions to ask our candidates - The South Shore Chapter of the Council of Canadians recently published a list of questions to ask canddiates in this election, touching on issues such as energy and food security, education, the "Atlantica" agenda, health care, forestry and fishing and (drum roll...) women's issues! The list is available here: http://blogs.southshorenow.ca/cofc/?p=10
