One could ask if there will ever be enough funds to save the lives of young mothers and children in developing countries. I suppose if I had access to public funds or I was a billionaire I may be inclined to attempt to save a few lives in developing countries. I would be more inclined to save a few lives here in Canada like the Sandra Schmirler Fund.
There was an interesting fact in the news release issued by the Prime Minister. It stated that, "The lives of more than five million mothers and children have been saved in developing countries since 2010 due in large part to the global effort to improve maternal, newborn and child health." That sounds good, but it leaves me wondering who was counting. It must be an elaborate system to calculate that fact over the last five years.
I believe Canadians need to be more diligent in monitoring how and where their federal government spends their tax dollars and to what end.
