Letter to Campbell and Martin on Welfare Time Limits

More than 125 organizations are calling on B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell to totally rescind the two-year time limits on welfare benefits. The organizations are also asking Prime Minister Paul Martin to attach conditions to the transfer of federal dollars to the provinces in order to bar British Columbia or any other province from making receipt of social assistance subject to a time limit in future. Two letters were released today: the cover letter to Campbell and Martin (in PDF) and the protest letter with the list of endorsers (in PDF). There's also a press release regarding the protest against welfare limits (in PDF) also available.
