Early Learning And Child Care - Good News/Bad News

The Good News Is:

7.5 million dollars is going to early learning and child care in Saskatchewan by the provincial government. That includes 500 new licensed child care spaces, funding for an additional 21 prekindergarten programs and enhanced training opportunities. The expansion combined with the 550 spaces announced in May totals 1050 new spaces this year.

The Bad News Is:

The Conservatives are now saying their promise to create 125,000 new child-care spaces over five years may not be realistic. Harper sold Canadians a fraudulent bill of goods, and it is children who will lose out.
