The BC Greens current platform (http://www.bcgreens.ca/childcare) astutely describes the nature of work, cost of living, and value of education. "Free Childcare" however is a deceptive euphemism to solicit votes. Shifting the burden from a parent to a paid childcare worker is illusionary. There is only one source of funds - you, me and our neighbour. Let us focus on publically funded programs that benefit most and/or all members of the public.
