A Nova Scotia Budget ft. Christine Saulnier (CCPA)

By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

Christine Saulnier is the Nova Scotia Director of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA-NS). We catch up with Christine to talk about her critique of the recently-released provincial budget released by Nova Scotia Minister of Finance, Labi Kousoulis.

We talk about child care, the high cost of post-secondary tuition in Nova Scotia and support for families needing income support.
