The Provincial Coordinator of First Call, the B.C. Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition says there were some areas in the provincial budget update that are a concern.
Adrienne Montani says she was a little disappointed about the lack of funding for childcare, other than building more spaces, the issue of affordability wasn’t mentioned….
Montani says overall the budget is going in the right direction with a number of social investments.
Montani says it’s also good to see the beginnings of a Poverty Reduction Plan for the province.
