Excerpts from the report:

On October 1, 2007 British Columbia rolled out the welcome mat to the globalization and commodification of child care. Changing long-standing public policy the BC Government announced that major child care capital funding will now be available to the private sector. Public money for private gain.

Should BC go the way of Australia where fees and government child care expenditures have soared but services to vulnerable populations, the very young and in rural and remote communities have stagnated?
