Surrey Board of Trade Wants a New Deal for Families

The Surrey Board of Trade has released the Business and Families Position Paper, asking provincial and federal governments for a New Deal for Families.  A New Deal is necessary because UNICEF ranks Canada among the worst industrialized countries for adapting policy to the declining standard of living for the generations raising young children. 

These generations are squeezed for time at home, because it now takes two adults to earn what one income often did a generation ago.  They are squeezed for income, because housing prices increased 149 per cent in BC since 1976.  And they are squeezed for services like child care, which often cost the equivalent of a second mortgage.
