WINNIPEG — Manitoba’s NDP would cap the fees schools can charge parents to $100 a year if re-elected.

The fee would include regular programming, school supplies, instrument rentals, and intermural sports.

Parent councils would also receive $1,000 grants to help offset child minding costs and fundraising efforts, and the Manitoba Association of Parent Councils will see increased funding.

Leader Greg Selinger said his party would also fund new child care centre John de Graff School as part of its $25 million plan to create 12,000 new child care spaces.
