Private Daycare Operators Say They Will Fight Back

Posted on Thursday, April 30, 2015 13:06 PM

Private daycare operators will be meeting around the province on Saturday to come up with a response to a funding cut from the provincial government.

Oromocto-Lincoln Conservative M-L-A Jody Carr charges cutting the funding for private daycares will force some to close and set childcare back 20 years.

Premier Brian Gallant argues there is no cut because his government has allocated 400 thousand dollars more for early childcare education.

In response to charges that provincial funding cuts will hurt women by and large, the Premier says his government's decisions undergo a gender based analysis.
