Op-ed: Illegal day cares won't solve problem
from North Shore News
Elizabeth James's column regarding an illegal day care home closing that you titled "Daycare Regulations Limit Parent Options" was a complete misunderstanding of the complexities involved. The issue of too few spaces is not that regulations are too tight, it is a problem of too few spaces overall in B.C. We have only enough licensed spaces for 20 per cent of children and yet upwards of 80 per cent of mothers are in the paid workforce. That's a huge gap and not one that we should even begin to suggest should be filled by leaving our precious young children in unregulated care - or illegal care.
