A private members’ bill that moves child care from patchwork to program needs your support. Take action today by emailing your MP.
Bill C303, the Early Learning and Child Care Act, will help build child care through a law like the Canada Health Act. The NDP-sponsored bill directs federal funds to high-quality programs that are universal, accessible and accountable.
If your MP is a member of the opposition, tell them Canadians are counting on their vote as the bill moves to second reading on Nov. 22. Tory MPs need to hear from constituents that their “plan” for child care won’t help Canadian children and parents.
Email your MP today. There’s a sample letter, but please add your own comments. Form letters to MPs don’t get noticed.
Earlier this year 100,000 Canadians signed an open letter supporting a pan-Canadian child care program. Let’s flood the Hill again on this important bill. Don’t forget to spread the word in your family, workplace and community.
