Excerpt from lecture:

"I will begin by laying out three reasons why we need to pay attention to policies directed to children. I will then establish two dimensions of social policy that allow us to put Canada's response to these challenges into a larger context. In the third part I will use these to examine one example of child policy that I have worked on most - child care. And I will end with an assessment of where the National Children's Agenda might be headed and the vision I think should guide it."
