Literacy and Volunteerism Unproductive

As I said here the Harpocrites believe in compassionate conservatism, that is philanthropy and charity rather than social programs. In their slash and burn approach to cutting unproductive programs (that is Liberal initiated programs) they have thrown the baby out with the bathwater. Two major programs they have cut into actually are essential one is volunteerism the other is literacy. Both have been cut across Canada. In Edmonton the cuts will mean the end of basic core programs. Core. Productive. And what does Edmonton Strathcona MP Rahim Jaffer have to say about the meanspirited ill advised cuts to these programs?

Jaffer also said he doesn't believe the funding cuts for Volunteer Alberta will affect volunteerism numbers in the province."We want to make sure the programs we're funding are actually having a positive effect, otherwise what's the use in funding those programs?"

Uh they are having a positive effect but won't have if you cut their core funding. The con-job is that the Harpocrites have not looked at what they are cutting, they just used a machete to get through the jungle of Liberal programs they love to hate.
