NDP commits $10 billion for 500,000 new child-care spaces across Canada
NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is promising to spend $10 billion over the next four years to create 500,000 new child-care spaces in Canada.
In an announcement at a child-care centre in Vancouver, Singh says a right to accessible and affordable child care would be enshrined in law under an NDP government.
That legislation would include provisions for training new child-care workers and ensuring they are paid appropriate wages.
The goal is to make sure care is available either at no cost, or a low cost of around $10 per day, for all families by 2030.
Singh repeatedly attacked the record of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, who he said ``walked away'' from families in need of child-care support.
It was Singh's seventh straight day in British Columbia, where he has made several regionally focused announcements.
