KAIROS funding cuts questioned in House of Commons

Kairos - which is quoted sometimes in these pages - is having its funding cut by the Canadian International Development Agency. Designed to pursue social justice, it has been funded through the last 35 years and currently receives $7 million a year. Though no explanation is being given for the cut, the consensus seems to be that the funding is being cut for political reasons, the National Post identifying it as a left wing group and GlobalBrief going so far as to say it had been infiltrated by activists. Readers can review their recent publications, most of which address climate change. There is also a worship and reflection page, with articles linking the organization's goals to its religious foundation. There is a petition online to protest the cut.
