On the Global Day of Action on Military Spending, Halifax voted for Health & Education
Members and supporters gathered in front of the former library on Spring Garden Road to mark the 5th annual Global Day of Action on Military Spending on April 15.
With the awareness that the Canadian Government spent approximately $20 billion on the military in 2012, passersby were invited to place a quarter in a symbolic vote for where they would rather their tax dollars be spent. Here are the results, in percentage value:
% PREFERRED AREA OF SPENDING
32% Health & Education
29% Women & Children
8% Arts and Culture
