WINNIPEG – A majority of Manitobans wouldn’t mind paying a little more in taxes if it went to child care in the province, according to a new poll.
A probe research phone survey of 1000 Manitobans shows 58 per cent in favour of digging a little deeper into their pockets if it meant every kid who needs a daycare spot, got one.
The poll shows more than 80 per cent of us agree the lack of child care spaces is a serious issue and 75 per cent feel its already too expensive.
As of the end of September, there were more than 15,000 children on the online child care registry waiting list.
The poll was conducted on behalf of the Manitoba Childcare Association.
