    A national childcare program has been a WHAM (Women of Halton Action Movement) issue for 40 years and some of you have been working on this issue for over 50 years.  We are getting very close to achieving this and have one more request of you.

    A motion will be going before the Halton Regional Government in a few days and we need letters of support for the motion.  

    Your letter can be a simple sentence such as "I support this Motion"  or whatever you wish.

    Please email your letter to the Regional Clerk at . 

    Numbers are important so PLEASE take a minute to read and support the attached motion.

    Thanks for all you do.

    Bev LeFrancois for the WHAM Steering Committee
