Code Blue asks Ottawa to stop foreign child care takeover

Child care advocates are asking federal politicians to stop an international corporation from bringing big-box, for-profit child care to Canada.

Echoing a warning already sounded in British Columbia by the B.C. Government and Service Employees Union (BCGEU/NUPGE), the Code Blue for Child Care campaign is urging the Conservative government in Ottawa to pass a private bill (C-303 - the Early Learning Child Care Act) to discourage expansion of for-profit child care.

Introduced by Denise Savoie, NDP MP for Victoria, the bill is scheduled to come before MPs in the House of Commons on Nov. 20. All three opposition parties have joined in supporting the aims of Code Blue.
