Child Poverty Growing in Cape Breton

The child poverty rate in Cape Breton is still bad…and a Canadian think tank says it’s getting a little worse. The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives says the rate is 32.8%…up a little from 32.4% in 2013. That compares to 22.5% for the province as a whole, which is the third worst in the country. It’s much worse at Eskasoni at 75.6%.
