We have a real problem in Ontario. Our province is home to Canada’s highest childcare fees. Costs are particularly high in the GTA, but families across the province are feeling the squeeze. Many families are paying mortgage-level fees to access licensed childcare, and many more families can’t afford childcare at all.
I believe that is simply unacceptable, and it is why I’m making childcare my first policy proposal in my bid to become leader of the Ontario Liberal Party.
