happy poverty day

shitty shitty internal politics and bad labour practices aside, the canadian wing of the make poverty history campaign has declared today "poverty day" in the context of the federal election. they've put out an election kit, as have others, and together with other anti-poverty groups in the country, are calling on candidates in the federal election to address poverty today. meaningfully.

there will be a nationally-televised forum on poverty issues tonight in toronto featuring mucky muck panelists like lewis and mcquaig (and me ol' pal jo grey too), with party representatives debating key issues. it'll air live at 7 pm edt on cpac. i can only hope it doesn't run parallel to the big "your turn" segment with paul martin and peter mansbridge. oooh good tv.

It was a worthwhile experience, did you end up watching the debate?
