A stroller brigade rolled down the sidewalks of Baker Street with signs and a banner in hand on Saturday afternoon in support of affordable childcare.

At exactly the same time hundreds of other concerned citizens, organized by the BC Labour Federation, showed their support at the legislature in Victoria. There is currently a plan on the table in the provincial legislature for several years that was created by the Early Childhood Educators of BC and the Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC which is called the $10/day Child Care Plan.
