The Conservatives Accuse You Of NOT Wanting To Raise Your Own Children If They Are In Daycare !
According to a senior Cabinet Minister, the Federal Conservatives believe that 84% of Canadian mothers do not want to raise their own children! The idiocy of Conservative ideology is so obvious, you really have to question the intelligence of the whole lot of them.
OTTAWA—Human Resources Minister Diane Finley has accused the Liberals of wanting to revive a national child-care program so that parents don’t have to raise their own children.
“It’s the Liberals who wanted to ensure that parents are forced to have other people raise their children. We do not believe in that,” Finley said in the Commons Thursday, the same day that Liberals were promising to revive the national program scrapped by the Conservatives five years ago this week.
Liberals are calling Finley’s remark an insult to working Canadian mothers and fathers and a clear declaration of bias in favour of stay-at-home parents — a rarity in Canada, where most mothers with children work. [...] New Democrats, who have put forward their own national child-care legislation in the Commons, were also outraged by Finley’s characterization of child-care programs.
“Finley insulted all teachers, all early childhood educators, child-care workers, organizers of parents’ resource centres and even babysitters. She is trying to inflict guilt on all working parents — a truly shameful, divisive behaviour,” said NDP MP Olivia Chow.
According to Statistics Canada’s 2007 labour-force review, 69 per cent of mothers with children under 2 are in the workforce. That figure rises to 84 per cent for mothers with children between 6 and 15 years of age."
Conservative Cabinet Minister Diane Finley continued to demonstrate her shocking lack of intelligence today as she again repeated her remarks that 'day care' is for people who don't want to raise their own children.
