The Harper government has spent millions to commemorate the War of 1812 and other episodes from Canadian history, but has also erased at least one inspiring piece of the past.

Thérèse Casgrain, a feminist icon and Quebec heroine who died in 1981, has been quietly removed from a national honour, to be replaced by a volunteer award bearing the prime minister’s banner.

Kyle Vose: ‘Why does the money have to come out of our pockets?’ (March 24, 2010)

By:  Canada, Politics Government, Published on Fri Mar 15 2013

Brian Dubourdie and Kyle Vose agree that Premier Kathleen Wynne is a good person who wants to do the right thing for the poor. But they dread the harm she will do to Ontarians with disabilities.

Both men receive disability support payments. Dubourdie is recovering from thyroid cancer but battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, depression and alcoholism (hasn’t had a drink in eight months). Vose has HIV, hepatitis B, hyperthyroidism and has been treated for multiple cancers. Neither is capable of working steadily.
