This short paper by Quebec economist Pierre Fortin analyzes and corrects arguments raised against Quebec's child care system as the exemplar of a universal approach. He presents data and research to counter what he calls "flawed statements" as published in a Fraser Institute report, covering 12 points including: the province's still-long waiting lists; the program's negative impact on child development; whether fathers' employment fell as mothers' rose; whether the public costs of the program have been "explosive"; and "misleading statements" about low income families' use of the program.
