What can federal politicians do to end child and family poverty in Canada?

Campaign 2000 met with Photojournalism students at Centennial College interested in learning more about child poverty in Canada. Despite the cold, the students took to the streets of Toronto, asking passers by to respond to this statement.

Children’s Rights are Human Rights

December 10, 2013, marks the UN General Assembly’s Human Rights Day. First proclaimed in 1950, this day declares human rights as a common standard for all peoples in all places around the globe. In 1989, children’s rights were recognized in the UN’s Convention on the Rights of The Child. All children are entitled to protection from abuse; provision of education, health care and an adequate standard of living; having their views heard, and; children vulnerable to discrimination are entitled to specific protections. Canada has a long way to go to protecting children’s rights.
