Opinion: Universal day care must be priority
from Toronto Star
It's shameful in a modern society that children are dying in unlicensed day care centres. I blame Prime Minister Stephen Harper who, immediately upon forming a government, dismantled Paul Martin's national child care program that had been endorsed by all 10 provinces. Harper told parents to fend for themselves, offering monthly subsidies that don't begin to cover the actual cost of proper child care. Did he really not foresee that this would lead to the use of substandard day care facilities?
