Find out what Mulcair said in French about stay-at-home moms (that he hasn't said in English)

Brian LilleyArchive

I'm calling this Thomas Mulcair's "beer and popcorn" moment.

The NDP leader, being a socialist and all, thinks the government is better at child rearing than parents are.

But for some reason, he's only said so in French (so far).

I'll show you an NDP infographic they want supporters to share on social media. Translated, it says, "Stephen Harper thinks keeping moms at home will help families. Not me."

That refers to the Conservatives' Universal Child Care Benefit, which is a sum they can use to pay for daycare OR put toward the expenses of stay at home parenting. It's each family's decision as to how they'll spend it.

Mulcair, on the other hand, wants to give parents a $15/day payout, but only if they put they children in daycare.

He's based his plan on the existing Quebec daycare system, which the Media Party would have you believe is a panacea.

The reality is, however, that the Quebec program is hugely expensive, the waiting lists are years long, and it really only benefits high-income families.

The program's supporters insist it pays for itself, but I have some StatsCanada numbers that show why this might not be the case.

What a terribly written article… Spelling mistakes and my favorite: “I have some Stats Canada numbers”… I guess we’ll just have to take your word for it?

Joan Abernethy said: “Glenn Craig – No, no, no, no, no!!!! We get the men to raise our kids. And to cook, clean,” Hmm….Mr. Mom! Nothing wrong with this if it is the FAMILY making this decision. They should have the ultimate say, not some socialist bureaucrat!

The Quebec Day Care program was NOT sustainable at the daily cost of $7.30 per day, so Premier Couillard introduced a sliding scale which will see some parents pay as much as $20 per day. This goes into effect in January, 2016. The way it has been worded is that parents will continue to pay $7.30, but at tax time, depending on family income, those parents at the higher income will be charged the $20 fee. Imagine how much that will cost some parents at tax time (an extra $12.70 per child per day.) Think 200 days x $12.30 = $2460! “The current rate of $7.30 a day per child will remain in effect, but when families prepare their annual income tax declarations, those who make more money will have to pay an additional amount.” Nov. 20, 2014 CBC News.

Think of how much Mulcair’s $15.00 per day Day Care Plan will cost Canadian taxpayers. ($!5..00 × 200 days = $3000 per year per child) A rough estimate of children aged 0 to 14 years living in Canada would be 6 million x $3000 = $18 billion per year.) I arbitrarily used 200 days as that is the number of school days in most provinces.

Surely the ultimate right of who should raise children should rest with the parents! And, they should have the right to decide how best to do it – NOT governments.

Darryl Kerney said: “at some point even the village idiot realizes something’s wrong when there’s no one left to pull the cart because everyone is in it.” A variation on that statement if I may, factoring Tommie the Commie into it: “When they came to take away my neighbours, we all stood and watched. When they came to take me away, no one was left to watch!”

Joan, my dear…. Have a glass of wine and calm down… They way the system is being transposed, neither man nor woman will have to worry about raising the children. Our grand and wise socialists will do that for us. Didn’t you know, that home parenting is becoming a thing of the past because it’s “bad” for the children? Our masters know best!

Ugh… I can’t keep that one up.
commented 2015-08-06 06:20:29 -0400
Glenn Craig – No, no, no, no, no!!!! We get the men to raise our kids. And to cook, clean, and prey on others for our supply of expensive bon bons.

Just because some politician tries to buy votes with one or another version of child care doesn’t mean parents must comply. If Harper is elected, it doesn’t mean mothers must stay home. If Mulcair wins, it doesn’t mean mothers can’t stay home. Parenthood is not motivated by profit. Not entirely.
commented 2015-08-06 06:12:37 -0400
Ah yes the great feminist liberation…..get other women to raise your kids.

Mulcair’s ideology is insulting to stay at home moms. I had 5 kids (2 adopted) and if I hadn’t stayed home with them their various special needs (life threatening allergies, malnutrition, learning disabilities, bonding issues,etc. etc.)would not have been adequately looked after. My “work day” was 24/7. It was hard and I regret none of it. My children have grown up well. I could not have trusted all the above to the “professionals” who couldn’t have given enough personal attention to each child. Everyone should have the choice to raise their own kids and not feel bad about it. Yeah Mr. Harper for understanding that.

Today, children raised from kindergarten to adulthood, are raised to only associate with their peers and have great difficulty relating to adults…just think what the future will be like when they spend ALL their lives with their own peers, not bonding with their families but with babies like themselves…it is truly frightening…the immaturity and inexperience we see today is just the tip of the iceberg…why bother having children anyway when they are just going to be lifetime wards of the state?

Brian: This is “preaching to the converted”, don’t you think? Why can’t this good information be out in the mainstream media for all to hear. The thought of a Socialist leading our country is absolutely frightening.

Donald Craig – about that $7 a day for daycare here in Quebec. Very few places offer that and the waiting list is years long!!!!! Most parents end up having to send their kids to the more expensive daycares.
commented 2015-08-05 22:51:17 -0400
Just boggles the mind. Mul-couldn’t-cair-less-about-Canada is sticking his foot in his mouth again – all the way up to the thigh. This whole daycare issue is very sensitive. Parents should have the choice – as PM Harper says, which way they want to work with it. There are some parents that can’t work – no jobs – so they would have to send their kids to day care anyway or forfeit the $15? That’s not right!!!
I agree 1000% with Keith Barnes – I have also been saying he’s in bed with the moslems – as is Justin, and he loves the seps too!! He wants to change the rule for separation to 50% plus one vote. He’s always seemed to be a closet sep himself.

Tommy’s position in the Polls is due to the fact that he has promised the Muslims, unlimited Immigration and he has also jumped in to bed with the French Separatist’s. He not only wants to ruin the Country, he also wants to split it up. Evil, Tommy, evil. Typical of Communists.

Well it seems to be working in Ontario and BC. Slowly taking roots in Alberta. Soon the whole country will be on social assistance. We can keep borrowing like Greece and the U.S. Since no one is available to pay taxes

Yes Brian, the socialists make the wealthy their enemy in public.

And the MSM parrots this narrative. And then the sheeple believe it.

And then the wealthy and the socialists transact the business while the sheeple suffer – funny how this works.

Jump on board to this train to get to Canada. Wait a sec, how come we are in Auschwitz? Ah yes, national socialists, or the enn-dee-pee if you like.

i have seen the figure of $7 per day for quebec daycare..if so does this mean that comrade citizen robespierres promise of a $15 per day charge will more than double the cost to quebec parents?

Rick said, “only the collective!”

Sounds like the Borg. :)

Hmmmm… I wonder.

Tom Forsythe said: “Has anyone else noticed that the places in the world with socialized day care are the places with the lowest birthrates?” Probably because the parents are too exhausted after slaving away at their Communist People’s Republic labours. Of course, in China, (whom Trudope admires), how many children parents can have is strictly regulated by the state.

Socialism for all indeed! The parents conceived the children bringing them into this world. Why on earth should they NOT have the choice as to how they’re raised? Oh, I forgot. Socialists believe in no individual rights, only the collective! In their world, it’s do as we say, and as in full blown Socialism (Communism) face consequences if you are not subservient! Elect Tommie the Commie or communist admirer Trudope and that is what Canada will become!
