Unionized daycare workers at 107 Montreal and area government subsidized daycare centres have just voted to strike.
Since daycare providers are not an essential service in Quebec, parents are left scrambling with only six days notice, something proponents of publicly-funded daycare tell us would never happen in a safe public system.
Proponents of Quebec's subsidized daycare system say that it's affordable for everyone, with its sliding scale of $7 to $20 per day.
But on the backside, Quebecers pay some of the highest personal income taxes in the entire country to fund this kind of stuff.
A 2015 joint MIT, University of Toronto and UBC study showed that exposure to Quebec's universal childcare system resulted in higher crime rates, problems with impulse control and hyperactivity in boys, and a decline in "pro-social behaviours" (like sharing, donating and volunteering) in girls.
But that's certainly not stopping this healthcare union from demanding more while leaving parents in the lurch.
