Dear Ms. Oda,
I wish to register my strong opposition to the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace receiving any further funding from CIDA.
A thorough examination of their partners reveals that many of them are Marxist in orientation (see example here) and promote various radical feminist agendas which many Canadians find objectionable. Development & Peace is also a founding member of KAIROS, an organization that CIDA has also recently defunded.
There is also some question about the excessive administrative costs which Development & Peace incurs in providing their programs.
Yours very truly,
