Opposed as I am to "charitable" donations via mandatory tax contributions, as compared to voluntary efforts and donations to help those in need, I can at least appreciate the Conservative government's attempt to reevaluate the foreign aid fund. A mess it inevitably remains, and NDP Alexa Mc-Donough, development aid critic, doesn't make anything clearer when she bleats.
There are 550 Canadian non-governmental organizations working on African causes, and they will be forming an orderly line outside the CBC to decry any government decisions that threaten their projects. Alexa Mc-Donough, the NDP development aid critic, said she finds the prospect of the government implementing any aspect of the Senate report "heart-breaking and horrifying."
