WHEREAS cuts to provincial child care funding will raise child care fees and freeze child care subsidies for low-income parents;
WHEREAS Toronto already pays the highest child care fees in Ontario and families need more support, not less;
WHEREAS the loss of over $80 million dollars in funding will mean 6,000 less subsidized spaces that families desperately need;
WHEREAS publicly funded child care is good for children, parents and a prosperous economy in Ontario;
WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to call on the Government to stop the provincial child care cuts and restore child care funding in full.
