Having affordable childcare would mean that we could actually afford a second child! We want one, but considering how expensive daycare is in BC, there's just no way. Next month we will be paying $900 a month for full time care for our daughter who will be 1. We pay that for our mortgage.
And unfortunately we are one of those families that makes too little to be able to afford daycare (especially for two kids) but too much to actually get any type of subsidy.
It's incredibly disheartening and disappointing.
