St. Catharines council to discuss "uncomfortable" issue tonight
A St. Catharines councillor admits its a topic some people will be uncomfortable talking about, but Greg Miller will make a push tonight for a pilot project to offer free feminine hygiene products at city run facilities.
Miller says anytime you're trying to change a norm, certainly what's available in a public space in a bathroom, you will get a little push back.
But he adds the move is overdue and necessary.
Miller cites a recent study by Plan Canada International indicating one-third of women under 25 struggle to afford the necessary products.
A growing number of MPs are lending their support to Canadian vets in their quest for justice. Is there such a thing as too much of a buffer zone between you and your parents? Should it be acceptable for politicians use VERY colourful language? And later, parents brawl at a little league baseball game.
Yesterday, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer released his climate plan. Critics say the plan is 'nonsense', just like Prime Minister Trudeau's climate pledge. Do derelict Canadian military vehicles -- in public spaces -- serve as public art that honor our vets? Some say it glorifies war.
