BC Does Not Like Mulcair’s DayCare Plans

Socialism is fine with other people’s money:

British Columbia has joined Ontario in signalling that Thomas Mulcair can’t count on it to kick in 40% of the budget for his signature daycare plan. The B.C. Ministry of Children and Family Development on Tuesday issued a statement declaring: “B.C. would welcome federal support for programs like day care, but not new federal programs that would push new, unaffordable costs onto B.C. taxpayers. The B.C. government has already committed $323.5 million for child care in 2015-16. This is a more than 50% increase since 2000-01 that, through our B.C. Early Years Strategy, is supporting the creation of approximately 13,000 new licensed child care spaces by 2020.

That’s Ontario and B.C. out, Saskatchewan iffy, Alberta broke. And Quebec already has a daycare plan.

    But the good news on the election trail today is Trudeau is promising a tax credit for teachers. Because as we all know, teachers need more benefits. I guess shiny pony is taking Wynne’s advice on sucking up to unions.

      And the Ontario budget will balance itself, according to the Honorable (ahem) Ontario Minister of Education after forking out raises for teachers, even though there was NO money in the budget.

      As a teacher I am embarrassed by the amount of money I make. That’s one of the main reasons I give to a couple of conservative run charities to help make up for the money that is donated on my behalf by the dickwads that run my union, as they butt kiss Progressives everywhere.

  • No one ever points out how these things will be paid for.

    A demonstration is in order.

    Walk up to the average Canadian. Take his wallet and remove everything from it. Tell him it is for the Liberals’/NDP’s X project. Count how long it takes before he explodes in fury.

    Soon the NDP will want to nationalize Housing and promise voters a 1500 sq ft house for $3000.00 , plus backed by the Government to carry the 30 year mortgage that you can also get while on Welfare .
