Education Minister tight-lipped on recommendation to scrap bilingual day cares in New Brunswick

New Brunswick's education minister remained tight-lipped Thursday on key recommendations stemming from a report released fifteen months ago on the province's daycare environment.

Among the recommendations are scrapping bilingual and for-profit day cares as well as full linguistic duality when it comes to the department's early childhood development sector.

Education Minister and Bathurst-West-Bathurst MLA Brian Kenny says the goal is accessibility for all New Brunswick children and that it's important to continue working with the Francophone sector for the values of Francophone families.

It's the second government-commissioned report calling for an end to bilingual child care.

In June of 2016 Premier Brian Gallant said his government had no plans for child care duality.
