The deadline for forwarding postcards in support of a national child care program has been extended t0069l January 15. Plans are being made to deliver the cards en masse to the Prime Minister in late January.
The goal of the campaign is to put pressure on the federal government to fund a national child care program in this year’s budget, living up to their promise to create 150,000 child care spaces. Only one of every 12 children who need child care has access to a licensed child care space.
The Kids Can’t Wait campaign was enthusiastically endorsed by national convention. Locals who need more cards should fax your request to CUPE National and they’ll be sent out right away.
