Canadian families all across our great land are waking up to inflated bank accounts this week, thanks to the federal government of Canada. But I’m really worried. I’m worried the federal Conservative government is using the parents who need this money the most to buy some votes.
What would I like to see? A national childcare program so women can financially justify their return to work. Now that would be money well spent! It’s hard for a mom to justify forking over apx. $1600 a month for childcare for two kids when she would gladly take care of them her self!
So the Harper government is clearly trying to swindle us families by giving us some money. Heck, us Canadian families deserve that money. But we also deserve to have a national childcare plan. That would be super sweet.
And if you do the math, cheaper childcare vs cheques from the government end up saving more families more money in the long run.
This fall I urge you to exercise your right to vote and research the issues that matter most to parents, families & kids.
