Even Notley knows Albertans can’t afford NDP’s virtue-signalling on $25 day care

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

To fulfill an election promise of $25 daycare, the NDP are implementing a $10M pilot program that commits up to $500,000 to each centre with a possible two year extension, in addition to a new lunch program that will rack up another $3.5 million per year.

But Alberta already has a daycare program:

Families making under $50,000 per year get a full subsidy, while those with an annual income of under $70,000 receive a partial subsidy which in some cases amounts to less than $25 per day.

As for the lunch program, there’s already a solution in place organized by grassroots community initiatives that the government doesn’t have a hand in.

There’s “Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids”, who work in partnership with Calgary schools to provide lunches for 3,200 kids every day and they, along with their network of 1,200 partners, do it for $1 per child.

Watch my video as I explain why the NDP are implementing these programs for brownie points.

They even admit that they’re only running pilot projects because Alberta can’t afford to implement the program under current economic conditions.

That’s $13.5 million for a small subset of Albertans so just imagine the colossal waste of tax dollars they'd have to spend in a province-wide initiative, for something that’s already funded.

Where is this money going to come from..?? She is carbon taxing us to death and yet she panders for the votes of what she calls working class people…!! These are nothing more than support systems, there’s only three ways to create wealth. That is mining forestry and agriculture everything else is a support system to that which she has taxed to extinction..!!

The NDP make my skin crawl. They are creepy predators that need to be put on the extinction list as soon as possible.

It’s all about taking over our children by pretending to be the mommy. Notley is a cancer and this communist needs to be removed from office.

Separation for Western Canada… If you’re not part of the solution you’re part of an ongoing problem..

He is a Man—- OMG—- I feel so much better.

Simmer down -Leviticus. I always thought that you was a Man. Not that there is anything wrong with you not being a man. I am feeling a little bit scared . Please don’t be angry with me. I don’t know what to say .

Well, Ron … long as you support a Culture of ONE parent families—- just how are you going to accomplish anything. The fact is you can’t . You just don’t want to admit it.

And maybe our divorce rate would even go down because people wouldn’t get married on whims and they would actually realize that there was a long-term responsibility in the vows that one made and especially of children were involved…!!!

Life would be a lot more simple if you look after yours and I’ll look after mine… No more subsidies..!! Have children if you can afford them if not get a better job as this is the way of the free market in a free country..
I am so tired of paying for the irresponsibility’s of pregnant single females and those racing 4or 5 kids on my dime.
And yes… I do blame the mothers because they have the ultimate say in whether they have sex or not… They have the ultimate say whether a condom is being used… They have the ultimate say at the end of the day because they know they are the ones that get pregnant and if they do there’s a nanny state government tailor-made ready to suit their needs from cradle to grave and we just all have to pay for that service.
If people had to pay for their own children there would be a change in people and the way they think.

Shebel Raj—-we were discussing a daycare program, where does Racism, demeaning you, or you impregnating women of a special culture come in? We both agree that these women want babies, and they want us to pay for them through the Gov’t.
I want them to get a job, save enough money to support their future baby, as I don’t want to pay for them. By the way statistics say "like mother, like daughter; the daughter ends up pregnant and on welfare just like mom. One big rotten circle.

I always thought that Rachel had the nicest, most kind face—- It is a shame that she embraced a Doctrine that wants to make Parents —-obsolete.

I remember once when very young attending a live performance of Shakespeares was the scene where MacDuff gets word that his kids were slaughtered……in spite of trying to cheer him up at the prospect of revenge…and I will never forget how the actor delivered this line….“HE HAS NO CHILDREN

Rachael in her comfortable childless shoes cannot possibly know….what those who have children know.

No,no no no no no – Ron——- you are just not understanding the reality of the situation in Canada. These young girls want babies . They also want some money so that they can act like these Canadian ladies that they see walking in the streets. The only way they can get this money is if I go out of MY and take the Time to impregnate them with a child of their Culture. I work hard at this. I find it to Racist and demeaning that you feel that you should be able to Judge me.

This is just vote pandering for the final days…
The funny part is they just might make it in for another term… If that happens I am leaving the province..

Shebel Raj—-You make some good points while you chastised Ken; much like the world made us feel guilty for the small Syrian child drowning and made us take in millions of invaders. Where you are wrong regarding Kens opinion is many of these single mothers only want a mans sperm so that they can get a larger welfare cheque, of which Ken and I have to pay for.
commented 2016-11-20 20:10:57 -0500
So they will take a helpful program and make it way more expensive and harder to run and more will fall through the cracks just so they can pat themselves on the back.
commented 2016-11-20 18:51:21 -0500
It has become a universally, inclusive world ,Ken, and your attitude , does require some adjustment. I suspect that you have enjoyed reaping the rewards of White Privilege. Why don’t you try knocking up a bunch of females and leaving them to survive on Welfare. Do you think that is fair ? Think for a moment — do you think that I feel proud as a Man? There are only so many children that I can care for !
commented 2016-11-20 17:36:40 -0500
I have a better idea, pay for your own fucking kids just like I pay for mine, fucking losers.

It is truly amazing how quickly Alberta managed to turn into Ontario ,once you let the NDP agenda loose on the Province. It is a shame . Eventually, all the the Provinces will be squabbling ,as to which is the most ’ deserving’ of the Coveted " Have Not" —designation. Poor Quebec—— at this rate, they might be forced to support the ROC. Time to Separate .

Ask the Eskimos about Notley’s blessings - yo Ottawa!!

Those " kids and parents " that she’s doing it for will be so far in debt when they grow up they experience 85% taxes
