The NDP are on the war path when it comes to Women's rights in Canada. The NDP Status of Women Critic toured Northwestern Ontario this week and touted her committees report on women's issues. Irene Mathyssen says it looks at First Nation women's rights and the report will be released in the New Year. Mathyssen is critical of the Federal Government denying funding to the Sisters in Spirit program. She feels the Federal Government needs to provide the funds and shouldn't have cut them in the first place.
