Looks like the Feds are upping the ante.
On Average $14,000,000/year in Transfer Payments 2013 to 2017 ACROSS CanadaEnabling Accessibility Fundhttp://www.esdc.gc.ca/eng/publications/rpp/2014_2015/rpp-1_2.shtmlGeneral targeted recipient group: Persons with disabilities across Canada through eligible funding recipients, i.e. not-for-profit organizations, for-profit organizations, municipalities, Aboriginal organizations (including band councils, tribal councils and self-government entities) and territorial governments.
That's about $42,000/yr per riding. It's tough to stretch that beyond one project per year.
From today's North Shore News:"An $11-million Enabling Accessibility Fund was announced Monday at North Vancouver District Public Library’s Lynn Valley branch by Candice Bergen, minister of state for social development and federal conservative MLA for North Vancouver, Andrew Saxton. - See more at: http://www.nsnews.com/news/fund-aims-to-improve-accessibility-1.1796497#sthash.kpy0mWSr.dpuf"Note that Andrew Saxton is referred to as "federal conservative MLA for North Vancouver."What's up with the North Shore News accuracy these days?
Brutal. North Shore News' accuracy has been in the dumps for several years.
Stupidity. Who are their editors? And what other mistakes are they making in reporting our news?
Anon 10:06 am, if you can't answer your own question, you aren't reading the paper in the first place, or you aren't paying attention. Wake up!
For those who might not have noticed, John Sharpe's latest letter on mountain biking was published twice in the North Shore News. How on earth can such a mistake be made?
