    With all due respect to Ms. Brown who was a minister in the B.C. NDP government from 1972-75, she should also complain about poverty in communist countries. If you believe everything she says you might think there has been no advancement in the economic participation of Canadian women. So many "feminists", like Ms. Brown, tend to be socialist in their ideological disposition; therefore I am always skeptical of their disquisitions on social and economic problems and proposed solutions. Finally, I'm always amused to see "poor" people smoking in these old documentaries; you would think single mothers would be more austere in their budgeting.
