On July 21, 2017, West Coast LEAF wrote to members of BC’s new Cabinet to let them know about three critical actions they can take to immediately improve the lives of women in BC.

We called on the new Attorney General to take immediate action to improve legal aid coverage and ensure that all British Columbians can meaningfully enforce their legal rights; we wrote to the province’s first ever Minister of State for Child Care to let her know that we welcome the opportunity to work with her on solutions to BC’s child care crisis, including the implementation of the $10aDay plan and the creation of a new funding category through Child Care Operating Funding; and we called on the new Minister of Health to urge him to improve women’s access to health and reproductive care by providing universal coverage for Mifegymiso.
