In Committee

If the goal is quality, accessibility, flexibility and inclusivity, why leave out women entrepreneurs that meet the standards in the guiding principals or “vision” of national childcare? The Minister’s rhetoric on the bill doesn’t match the language in the bill: “Guiding Principle a)Facilitate access to early learning and child care programs and services — in particular those that are provided by public and not for profit child care providers — that meet standards set by provincial governments or Indigenous governing bodies and respond to the varying needs of children and families” Bill C35 needs to include ALL licensed providers that meet provincial standards.

Studying Bill C35 the National Childcare framework, which puts into legislation the vision of national childcare. Today’s testimony is clear. Only specific sectors of childcare were consulted on this ‘vision’, and voices like yours are absolutely critical in making sure national childcare is reflective of ALL Canadians.

The Liberal Minister cherrypicked her friend over an open and transparent contract process. She should pay back the money because it belongs to Canadians.

This Liberal Minister seems to think that Canadians will be fooled with her governments repackaging of old announcements. There’s zero mention of their promised 4.5 Billion dollar Mental Health transfer.

If the goal is quality, accessibility, flexibility and inclusivity why leave out a sector in the vision of childcare that provides care for so many children across the country? Parents should choose where to send their kids to care, not politicians in Ottawa.

Liberals and NDP vote NO to opening access of the “National Childcare Framework” to all families. Conservatives believe that parents have the right to choose what childcare suits them best, not politicians in Ottawa. #ChildCare4All
