“Child care should be part of our social infrastructure in this country, available to everyone who needs it,” said Carolyn Ferns of the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care.

“It’s good that Ontario is moving forward, but I think the federal government should be pushing things further along, not just handing out the cheques,” she said.

“The federal spending power gives Ottawa the ability to lead the way,” she added. “If we don’t have a real vision for child care in this country, we’ll keep seeing stops and starts in different provinces.”
