Monday April 18th from 12pm - 1pm
827 Fort Street, Victoria
Outside DND Recruitment Centre

Organized by the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace and theInternational Peace Bureau

The Canadian government spends over $23.6 billion on the Department of National Defence and $9.8 billion on Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness but only $1.5 billion on Environment Canada, of which only $172 million is planned to be spent on "Climate Change and Clean Air" for the 2015, 2016 & 2017 budget periods.  Canada is the 6th highest spender on the military among NATO countries and is the 16th highest worldwide. 

 

We cannot tackle the climate crisis and end poverty in our country, if we continue to waste our precious tax dollars on war and weapons. Let’s move the money from militarism to sustainability!
