The Victoria Times-Colonist    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A key factor in quality child care is the educator-to-child ratios. The current ratios in B.C. are too high and take away from every child receiving the same level of care.

While it is true that chicken pox, also known as varicella, usually causes a mild illness, the complications from this infection are common and can be severe. More
