Here is another reason NOT to trust the Liberal Day Care program.
This wasn't a case of the Alberta Government closing the program, nope this wasn't a case of parents not using the program, nope, it was a case of the Liberal Government closing the day care.
Now mind you I don't think I would be going out on a limb to say that this smacks of racism since this was an aboriginal/metis run day care. Yep the Liberals got a lot of explaining to do over this one.
Parents protest closure of children's programs
The group is upset at the closure of two programs that provide day care and kindergarten programs for aboriginal and non-aboriginal children. They say the federal government has cut the funding for the Medicine Wheel Early Learning Centre and the Ke Mama Nnanik parent program for the coming year. The school focuses on preserving traditional aboriginal and Métis culture and language while providing 50 preschool and kindergarten spaces. Michelle Thrush has one child that has gone through the program and another that is currently enrolled. She says the program has helped more than 400 aboriginal families. A spokesperson for Health Canada says the programs are being cut because concerns were raised about the way they were being run. But Lori Anne Houle, the director of the Medicine Wheel and Ke Mama Nnanik programs says they have been run properly for years and have the audits and internal reviews to prove it.
