When inequality in Canada goes up, child well-being goes down
National Child Day has been celebrated across Canada every Nov. 20 since 1993 to commemorate the United Nations' adoption of two documents describing children's rights: The 1959 United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Unfortunately, National Child Day 2016 received very little media fanfare or comment in Canada. Judging from UNICEF's newly released Report Card 13: Fairness for Children, which measures the depths of inequality in children's well-being across the richest countries in the world, there is little to celebrate.
