Editorial cartoon questions government priorities amid underfunding of community living sector

Summary: 
The editorial cartoon below was published in the Comox Valley Echo on September 27, 2013, highlighting Inclusion BC's alert urging the provincial government to honour its agreements.

Inclusion BC has called upon the BC government to  fully fund the wage increase agreed to in collective bargaining in the community social services sector (http://www.inclusionbc.org/disability-supports/whats-new/alert-people-developmental-disabilities-risk-again-due-bc-budget-cuts)

The cartoon focuses on government's priorities. It is clear that families and people with developmental disabilities are at risk from this latest round of government cuts, and it is time for the government to step up, fill the gaps, and fully fund the increase in the sector.
