A very disappointing point of view. I was initially quite hopeful reading your title, but the call to create a new bureaucracy is wasteful and harmful to the hundreds of nonprofit organizations that already work in this realm. I've seen firsthand (worked for) the impact of government creating new non-profit organizations and pitting them against the agencies that have worked hard on a cause for years, with little financial incentive, only to have a new government agency masquerading as an NPO, swoop in, take away the staff that the small NPO has cultivated and trained and create a bureaucratic entity that exists to do the work that Government should do through legislation and funding agreements; and that NPOs have already been doing with too little money and too little mandate. Let's stop creating new organizations and begin to invest in the good work that is already out there.
