If you care about the future of child care and early childhood education in Manitoba - vote Liberal today - Free Press exposes differences in political parties on child care and early childhood education
The Winnipeg Free Press in their article "Day Care Dilemma" laid is out clearly. "More than half of Manitobans struggle to access the child care they need." They lay out the platforms of all the political parties and say with respect to the Manitoba Liberals that
"The Liberals say they would put up 18,000 new spaces over eight years and boost workers’ wages. That would mean a total target of 55,000 spaces by 2027. The party appears to be the only one to have a goal for overall child-care spaces."
None of the other parties had a goal to address the wait list. Indeed, as an example, the NDP say "The NDP have promised to add 600 spaces a year." This is only a fraction of what Liberals will add - which is 2,250 spaces a year. Further the NDP plan would take 30 years to reach the 18,000 new spaces needed to address the current wait list.
