CUPE National’s Equality director Maureen Morrison is part of the Canadian labour delegation gathered this week in New York at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women meeting.
In this webcast from the UNCSW, Morrison, a child care activist for 30 years, speaks with Mira Hill, who also wants Canada to adopt an accessible, universal child care program. Hill is from the Centre for Northern Families in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.
