Warden Against Further Daycare Delay

Lambton County’s Warden doesn’t see the need to follow in Sault Ste. Marie’s footsteps.

The debate on the future of a municipally run daycare in Sault Ste. Marie has been delayed until after the provincial election.

Lambton County Council recently delayed a decision on the future of Coronation Park Day Nursery for three weeks to allow for further review.

Warden Todd Case doesn’t see why council should wait until after the June 12 vote.

A staff report is expected back before County Council June 4. Sarnia Mayor Mike Bradley intends to table a motion to wait until after the election.

The Oak Ave. centre in Sarnia has 38 child care workers and provides licenced daycare for nearly 160 children.
