Most prefer child care to cheques: pollOctober 9, 2008

A Nanos poll reveals Canadians prefer a national child care system to the Harper government's $100 monthly cheque by a ration of 2 to 1.

The Harper government established its "Universal Child Care Benefit" when they cancelled the Liberals plans for a national early childhood education and child care program.

Almost twice as many Canadians said that setting up the national early childhood education and child care program is preferable (58 percent) to a monthly allowance of $100.00 (31 percent).

"The demand for a system of child care services has not subsided but in fact has significantly increased since 2006,"said Paul Moist. . .
