MLA Laurie Throness questions Finance Minister on tax effects on childcare

MLA Laurie Throness rose in the house to raise the case of Willow Creek Childcare in Terrace. As one of the largest childcare centres in B.C.’s north, Willow Creek will be hit hard by the NDP government’s new employer health tax – facing more than $14,000 in new annual taxes. Willow Creek operates on tight margins, leaving owner Jennifer Maillet concerned about how this much-needed service will continue to operate.
