Mr. Speaker, over 100 organizations came to tell the committee that Canada needs a coordinated poverty reduction strategy. Even the minister wrote, in a document entitled “Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy--What We Heard About Poverty So Far”, that we need:
...a Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy that is focused on achieving real results that can be measured....
The plan to fight homelessness that was announced yesterday is not enough. We need a real strategy, like the government promised, not a series of phoney strategies or piecemeal plans.
My question is simple. Where is the strategy?
