Child Poverty

An hour about child poverty in Canada. It first aired on Centrepoint- the documentary feature from the program Sunday Morning, in September 1990.

And the issue hasn't gone away. In May 2012, a study by the United Nations Children's Fund found that Canada lagged behind other developed countries in fighting child poverty. We came in at number 24 out of 35 industrialized nations. The report says that after the economic crisis that started in 2008, there has not been enough attention paid to child poverty.
