Contributing to the Common Good: 2007 pre-budget submission

Submission to the Standing Committee on Finance Pre-Budget Consultations
The House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance has asked what criteria should guide changes to Canada’s tax system. CPJ has submitted a brief underscoring that paying taxes is an important way that citizens contribute to the common good – funding the public infrastructure and services that create a shared and sustainable prosperity.

CPJ responds to 2007 Federal Budget

Federal budgets should inspire our deepest commitments as citizens; commitments to live out the values of compassion and solidarity. We share as a matter of public justice a responsibility to look out for, not just our own needs, but also for the needs of our neighbours. From this perspective, Budget 2007 leaves a lot more for which to aspire.

Citizens for Public Justice’s call for a national poverty reduction strategy is rooted in our commitment to the biblical call to do justice. It is also based on our understanding of public justice and the responsibilities of active citizenship.
