TORONTO — Mike Schreiner released the following statement regarding the Ontario government’s and federal government’s delay on signing an affordable child care:
“The Premier and the federal government need to make a deal now to bring affordable child care to Ontario.
Enough with the delays.
How long do the federal government and the Premier expect families to wait?
Affordable child care will provide essential support for families, especially mothers who have been so hard hit by the pandemic, and help Ontario’s economy recover from the she-cession that is negatively impacting labour force participation.
Ontario needs $10-a-day child care that is accessible to all families including shift workers.
Affordable child care will help stimulate a green and caring recovery from COVID-19 that is rooted in equity.
Let’s get it done.”
