“NDP MP Don Davies (Vancouver-Kingsway) appears to be pushing the government to make good on its promise. He tabled Bill C-446 earlier this month — an act to develop a national school food program for children that would require the federal Minister of Health to develop a school food program to ensure that all children in Canada have access to healthy food.”

“In a country as prosperous as Canada, no child should ever go to school hungry. Yet today more than one and a half million Canadian children live in homes that struggle to put food on the table.”

“That’s why federal NDP health critic and Vancouver-Kingsway MP Don Davies announced a plan this week to create a national school-food program for every child in the country. It sounds like an ambitious and expensive idea, but hear me out about why it makes an incredible amount of good old common sense.”

“Throughout the coming month, I urge all Parliamentarians to help raise awareness and act now to improve life for over 77,000 Canadians living with MS. Together, we’ll find a cure.”

“If the Minister claims her number one priority is the health of Canadians, then how can she sit back and ignore health guidelines that will cause over 400 women to die every year?”

“Canada urgently needs a comprehensive action plan for suicide prevention. It’s simply unacceptable that we remain among the only developed countries without a national approach, despite a long-standing recommendation to this effect from the World Health Organization.”
