Iglika Ivanova and Lynell Anderson: Building B.C. a universal child-care system means rethinking how to pay for new spaces

OPINION: To quickly meet the needs of B.C. families we need to rethink how we fund new spaces and invest in publicly owned child care facilities

However, too many families are still desperate for access to quality, licensed child care.
