A local politician has weighed in on the latest child death at an unlicensed daycare in Ontario.
Hamilton Mountan NDP MPP Monique Taylor says today’s news of the tragic death is another ‘sad reminder of why the province needs to do more to ensure our children’s safety in home-based daycares in Ontario.’
The Children and Youth Critic notes that just a couple months ago the Ombudsman launched an investigation into how the government is handling complaints and investigations of unregulated daycares.
York Police were called to a daycare in Markham late Wednesday afternoon for a report of a 9 month old girl not breathing. Efforts to revive her were unsuccessful.
Investigators say an autopsy conducted Thursday found no anatomical cause of death.
