A Blog gives you current information and items of inerest. The National Council of Women of Canada (NCWC) has done two blogs on the meetings of the Commission on the Status of Women, 2010, and 2011. We are continuing now with a blog, on a range of topics of interst to members and the public. The NCWC has a very complete web site where you can learn more about the history and members of Council.

A blog (a blend of the term web log) is a type of or part of a website. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order.

Most blogs (including this one) are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via widgets on the blogs and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites

Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pates, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.

As of 16 February 2011 (2011 -02-16), there were over 156 million public blogs in existence.

Canada's Reality Check Think Canada is a great place to live?

Think again.
Use this checklist to ensure nothing less than a Canada with Human Rights for ALL its citizens!

Does your candidate support:

* policies and programs that are transparent and accountable?

* a national child care program that is universal, accessible, affordable, good quality, secure, public and non-profit?

* a federal housing strategy that will create affordable, stable, accessible and safe housing for women and children?

* a federal poverty reduction strategy that invests in Canada's social infrastructure to reduce the impact of poverty on ALL women and children?

* economic security for women that includes good jobs, equal wages, and decent EI and social assistance entitlements?

* a federal strategy to end violence against women and girls, based on human rights principles, to ensure that they are no longer 'over-policed and under-protected'?

* repeal of the unnecessary and expensive criminal justice reforms, and spend those billions of tax dollars on social, economic, health and educational services instead of prisons?
