Adopt & Implement the $10aDay Child Care Plan

Having a family is not affordable in BC today, but it doesn't have to be this way. By implementing the $10aDay Child Care Plan, we'll make family life more affordable, reduce income inequality, create jobs and grow the economy. And, child care is part of a green economy.

    As someone who is about to start a family and struggling to make ends meet, I completely disagree with this proposal.

    Yes the plan would benefit some parents, but it would do so by putting a higher tax burden on those parents who would choose to be a stay at home parent as well as those who are trying to save money prior to becoming a parent.

    I believe that there are much more important places to spend tax dollars that would benefit parents while promoting social networks and support structures to parents in need.

    The $10aDay Child Care Plan also seems to be extremely lacking on any sort of cost or risk analysis. Cost and risk analysis are not something that should ever be overlooked, as they are crucial to a good plan.

    I think an important part of this would also involve a review of the general standards and child to carer ratios in private day care facilities.
