Speak up for child care: Reframing the child care conversation in Canada

Event date: 
1 Jun 2015 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Metro Hall - Room 308
55 John Street, Toronto, Ontario 

A panel presentation with Trish Hennessy, Director of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives - Ontario Office, and Brooke Richardson, doctoral candidate in Policy Studies at Ryerson University, will critically examine the existing framing of child care in Canada and explore progressive reframing of the issue in preparation for the 2015 Federal election.

Inspired by the work of cognitive psychologist George Lakoff, Trish and Brooke explore how ideology and emotion often trump rational policy debates. This session will explore how to progressively reframe and reclaim the child care conversation at this crucial time.
