Mr. Speaker, FANE is a francophone organization.
What can the minister possibly have against the YWCA, the Canadian Diabetes Association, the Canadian Cancer Society, the Elizabeth Fry Society, and arts groups, all of which are non-partisan, non-profit organizations across Canada?
Last year the Autism Society of Nova Scotia had seven positions. This year? Nothing.
Organizations like these have a question for the government: “Why is the government shutting us out?”
When will the minister restore full funding to this program? When will he do what is right for these organizations across Canada?
