Re: Big-box child care buys Ontario centres

Education Minister Laurel Broten says she won't declare a moratorium on new for-profit child care because some communities don't have any non-profit providers. The minister can't just throw up her hands and declare it's up to the market.

If Ontario had a real plan for child care, municipal centres wouldn't be gutted. If Ontario had a real plan for child care there would be planning in place that ensured decent access for families across the province.

If Ontario had a real child-care system, big box companies wouldn't be able to take advantage.
