    This election there is a better choice for the economy and the future. The CLC believes there is a better choice. One that gets us ready to support and care for our aging population.

    Our recommendation is straight forward, as early childhood education and care is first and foremost a responsibility of the provinces/territories, the Premiers should use this opportunity to commit to a collaborative approach and concrete pan-Canadian strategy on early childhood education and care that respects provincial jurisdiction. In response to the recent incidents and deaths of very young children in unregulated, sometimes illegal child care arrangements across Canada, we strongly believe that the provinces/territories must develop a plan that ensures all...
