Most Torontonians in favour of fully funded public daycare

The poll also found that the majority of respondents who rent were more likely to be in favour of the idea versus those who own their own home.

And you get to pay for it!

    Makes sense. Toronto is full of immigrants now, and they have been told EVERYTHING IS FREE HERE!! The rest of the province can pay for it.

    • Liberal Progressive

      The majority of working people are conservative, so they need to be punished with higher taxes to pay for everybody else!

        In another poll, most Torontonians would like free beer and popcorn delivered to their homes every weekend.

          I’m voting Rhinocerus because they promise free beer plus guaranteed orgasms.

          They are much more likely to keep their promises than the Liberals.

            Just because Rhino’s are horny, doesn’t make them better lovers. NOT FROM EXPERIENCE, just sayin’. 😉

        • Sharkibark

          Can I ask for wine and salt ‘n vinegar chips? I’m willing to pay a $1 co-op fee for the change 😀

  • P Penny

    We absolutely need this.

    Somebody has to watch my kids when I go to score some spice!

    • Starlord

      Or khat.

  • Sharkibark

    I’m sure they’ll do just as good a job with daycare as they have with e-health, the air-ambulance service Ornge boondoggle, eHealth, Ontario Hydro and smart meters. As an added bonus, there will be thousands more government workers who will belong to public unions who will vote Liberal! In addition to the thousands more government workers who’ll be selling pot! Yayyyy! Free money for everyone, including the Liberal Party!

      The Liberals have finally found a job perfectly suited for Ben Levin!

      Who better to head up the bureaucracy in charge of rearing children?

      • Sharkibark

        I just had a liberal lightbulb moment. Let’s put the daycares next to the pot dispensaries!! Wynne-wynne!

          Ouch-ouch!

            We just keep Wynneing. 🙁

        And on,and on, and on!

  • Hard Little Machine

    I suspect it’s a cost issue.

    I wonder who they polled and how large the sample size was. But the big red flag is the MOE — 3,9%(!!!!) — extremely high.

    Classify under Lieberal electioneering strategy (propaganda) and ignore.

  • Starlord

    But will the daycare staff be fluent in Urdu and be Halal, separate the boys from the girls and have Koran study…

    • Surele Surele

      of course they will. everything but Christmas, Halloween, Easter. They will do a smidgen of Channukah, just so.

  • Ron MacDonald

    The Liberals need the Toronto vote to have a chance at winning the next provincial election, the rest of Ontario will be paying for daycare to keep the lying bitch in power.

  • Nothing is free. Someone (ie – tax-payers) pay for it.

    I can’t wait for the bottom to fall out of this.

    Why bother to have children if you don’t want to invest the time, energy and money into raising them?
    Please…do us all a favor and if you don’t want to raise them and would prefer someone else do the hard work, while you interact with them for minutes and see them for at most a couple of hours a day, just have a few goldfish. It’s all you can cope with.

    • Surele Surele

      Overheard in office cafeteria (couple of years ago). An Italian mother: “when my kids were born, I stayed home until they went to school. I will not have the government raise my children.” Apparently, children are most precious, but not as much as the second car, vacation and summer cottage, or whatever….

      • Tooth&Claw

        If you want any sort of long lasting bond of love and respect with your children, you need to spend lots of time with your kids, talk to your kids, and teach them about life. You are their first teacher, their first example, and the only one who is willing to sacrifice for their benefit and long term survival.

        • Surele Surele

          Well said. I see the fruits now in how my son raises his children. With his wife of course. And am very proud.

          Time with your children is one of the few times where quantity trumps quality. Of course you can have both if you value quantity first.
