World Day of Social Justice: Healthy Communities and a Sustainable Economy

OTTAWA – Today, the Green Party of Canada would like to raise awareness to the United Nations World Day of Social Justice, observed on February 20th since 2007.  

The key to social justice, one of the Greens six fundamental principles, is the equitable distribution of social and natural resources, both locally and globally. Basic human needs should be met, and full opportunities for personal and social development provided for all citizens.

"When it comes to accountability on social justice, Canada can do much better. Social justice and poverty elimination are about building and supporting healthy communities and a sustainable economy,” said Rebecca Harrison, Green Party Critic on Poverty Elimination.
