On Saturday April 21st 2012, in response to Ontario's yet-to-be debated austerity budget, thousands of Ontarians from across the province came together at Queen's Park to stand up for the Ontario they believe in as part of the new We Are Ontario campaign. The child care community was proud to stand alongside labour partners, community activists, parents and kids to defend public services and good jobs.

The Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care's Katie Arnup spoke out about the shameful fact that 4 out of 5 Ontario kids do not have access to a licensed child care space.
