Budgets are about choices—choices about what kind of country we are and what kind of things we value as a society. So while a lot of coverage will focus on what is or isn't in this year's budget, it's important to look at this federal budget as a continuation in a long line of choices.

So let's ask, "What choices have been made so far?"

Clearly, the answers aren't good.

These budget choices paint a picture, and it doesn't look good for the health of our communities and the people and places we love.

Tomorrow's federal budget will represent another set of choices about what kind of Canada we're leaving for our children and generations of children to come.

Check back here for analysis about what those choices are and what you can do about them.
