Calling it "a jobs-and-growth hat-trick," federal Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland put a national child care plan front and centre in her first ever budget. The price tag is in the billions, and needs the provinces to sign on. We discuss the feasability of this plan and the need for it that the pandemic has highlighted.

Panelists include Alana Powell of the AECEO, Armine Yalnizyan and Dr. Kate Bezanson.
