Bev Oda the Minister in charge of the Status of Women should resign.
She has cut funding for the Womens programs based on advocacy, education, information and lobbying.They have dropped 'equality' from the funding mandate. And she has the audacity during Question Period in the House to say that she and the Conservatives speak for ALL women in Canada. I think she is confusing ALL Women with the right wing Christian lobby; REAL Women.
Critics slam Oda over funding cut to women's lobby groups.
She has listened to REAL Women and the right wing and included funding now for "spiritual" initiatives. Uh oh can you say seperation of Church and State.
This is the Conservatives backdoor way of funding the right wing Christian anti-union, anti-abortion, anti-feminist, anti-gay rights lobby. Like their day care funding it is faith based politics.
That is the Harper Hidden Agenda. Faith Based intiatives were never discussed by the Conservatives during the election and it ain't in their priorities.
They are using tax payers money to fund tax free church groups and the tax free religious political lobby.Make the bigots pay! Tax the Churches!
Of course there is another reason she should resign, her ties to the corporate Copywrite lobby from whom she took donations during the election.

The Failure of Christianity
by Emma Goldman
Everywhere and always, since its very inception, Christianity has turned the earth into a vale of tears; always it has made of life a weak, diseased thing, always it has instilled fear in man, turning him into a dual being, whose life energies are spent in the struggle between body and soul. In decrying the body as something evil, the flesh as the tempter to everything that is sinful, man has mutilated his being in the vain attempt to keep his soul pure, while his body rotted away from the injuries and tortures inflicted upon it.
