Sullivan meeting on childcare

Mike Sullivan will be hosting a meeting on childcare this Tuesday—a topical issue, given that Weston Village Childcare is in mortal danger. Olivia Chow will attend.

A pro tip: guests might consider asking about the NDP’s commitment to universal childcare. Jack Layton’s NDP brought down the minority Martin governmennt when we we on the cusp of actually getting childcare for all.

Layton, simply by letting things happen, could have helped deliver the policy that offered the single best reason to vote for a socialist government. But instead of taking a solid gain for working families, Layton concentrated on developing the NDP around his own personality.
