How about daycare space for the Richmond Olympic Oval?
I understand that the city is considering spending a million dollars to add “retail space” to the Richmond Olympic Oval. This would be a wonderful idea if Richmond were short of “retail space.”
I suggest to you that we are not short of retail space, Richmond could use some support for families. I would like to make the following less expensive suggestion that would be a greater benefit to Richmond. Why not an affordable, extended hours daycare centre? This would assist parents with their return to the workforce; the extended hours would help those parents working at the airport and in “retail.”
Returning parents to the workplace would help families and would be good for the economy.
