(Montreal) The former Premier Pauline Marois returned to service and launched the campaign, not election, but pressure to support early childhood centers (CPE).
Mrs. Marois, to whom we owe the creation of the EPC network as Minister of the Family in 1997, is the star of the third video posted by CSN as part of its campaign “A network makes it grow. ”
In the short video less than a minute, Ms. Marois remind the Prime Minister Philippe Couillard as the network of CPE and family child care that he has “hands” is “a real gem” that helped ” reduce poverty among women single parents, immigrant women and among families. ”
It invites the Prime Minister to “not let them down.”
The vice-president of the CSN, Véronique De Seve, said in an interview with The Canadian Press that the cuts to child care, not only within the network but also in schools, directly affect the quality of services provided to children.
Ms. De Seve argues that certain home childcare services must now hold open houses to attract parents because many of them are turning to private commercial nurseries, whose services are becoming cheaper because of tax credits since the tariffs were adjusted according to income.
According to her, this is a roundabout way of encouraging private care at the expense of the public network and families.
