We are encouraged that the Conservative government says it is willing to consider "alternatives to the tax system" and will begin consultations on ways to encourage the creation of more child-care spaces. We hope that during this process, Diane Finley, the Minister of Human Resources and Social Development, will be convinced of what many people already know &emdash; a comprehensive national child-care system cannot be built by offering employers tax incentives to create the necessary spaces.

We also hope Finley will realize the real answer is to honour the series of federal-provincial child-care agreements struck last year.
