In Brampton, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Doug Ford announce the details of the $13.2-billion agreement aimed at providing $10-a-day child care in the province by September 2025. They are joined by Chrystia Freeland (deputy prime minister and minister of finance), Karina Gould (minister of families, children and social development), Stephen Lecce (Ontario minister of education), Sonia Sidhu (MP for Brampton South), Prabmeet Sarkaria (MPP for Brampton South), and Akosua Matthews (vice-chair of the YMCA of Greater Toronto’s board of directors). Ontario is the last province to sign on to the $30-billion national child-care program that was announced in the 2021 federal budget. The prime minister is also asked about Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine and his government’s plan to meet its emission reduction targets.
