Daybreak Montreal from CBC Radio: February 14, 2013

Parents complain it's a struggle to find their way through the Quebec daycare system. We hear from two whose children attend private non-subsidized daycare and the CAQ critic for family. Environment Canada says half of the winter smog in Montreal comes from fireplaces and wood stoves. The town of Kirkland is trying to do something about it. Shawn Apel heads to a small green space some call a park. Others don't see it that way. We hear from the McGill Provost who is outraged by the PQ handling of university finances. Jeanette Kelly speaks to Quebec actor Roy Dupuis. And Doug Gelevan attends French lessons for Alouette football players and almost goes ice canoeing.
