Well, one wants to try to provide child care for every family in Canada that needs it.

The other wants to give families $5 per day per child, and let them find private care with that!!!

Personally, I prefer ideallistic and naive to stupid and cold-hearted.

$5 per day!!! Thanks Tories. You just paid for the bus ride to and from the day care centre every day. Now how do I pay for DAYCARE?!?!

Then I guess you are saying that the Liberals are extreamly "stupid and cold-hearted" for not giving anything for the last 12 years. Unless the kids parents own a Liberal freindly ad firm...


I guess it's stupid and cold-hearted for the Liberals to give nothing to stay at home parent under their new program...


I guess you really think it's stupid and cold-hearted to not give the unions all those new daycare jobs...

"Provide health care to every family in Canada that needs it." Well, excuse me but you are forgetting all of the rural families who won't be receiving any of Paul Martin's child care. I agree with alsocanadian in that Paul Martin wants to choose which families get a crack at tax dollars. He is essentially taking taxes from stay-at-home parents and using them to subsidize urban, working parents. Seems like nothing more than an unfair vote-grab (nothing we're not used to seeing from the Liberals). At least Stephen Harper isn't taking money from lower income families (with one stay-at-home parent) and subsidizing higher income ones!

So what about the fact that the Liberal's plan was 5 billion over 5 years and the Tory's is 10 billion over 5 years. I guess the Liberal's $2.50 a day is even more cold hearted. Guys, you might want to look at the facts before you make yourselves look so silly. Its riduclous to think that a billion a year is going to provide daycare for every child in Canada.

Wow, what a play..Harper finally holding a child. Seems to me that Martin has had plenty of interactions with children of our country. There are many suitable pics you could have put in your blog of that..but you wouldn't dare, would you! If I was choosing to put my child in daycare, as I did for a brief period at one time, I paid for it myself so I could choose the best for my child, and paid for it myself as a single, low income, single mom.
Staying at home is an option we can choose if we want to do without all the material things in life so we can concentrate on bringing up our children. If people choose to work while having children, then they should be happy there is any kind of government help for them.
Our healthcare is most important to me, and that is to keep it on an even playing field, not one for the rich and one for those who cannot afford to buy their way to the front of the line. Since those who choose the option to stay home to take care of their children and do not live with huge incomes, they should have the same benefits for healthcare as everyone else! Anyone who is familiar with what the majority of the Harper backers want, it is private health care. Keep an eye on the Alberta bloggers.

I was trying to find the one with Martin awkwardly holding a young child by the butt, (the kid was kinda slipping out of his arms, I'm not implying anything else) but for some reason that didn't make it in the national press. Face it, in all the photo ops I've seen, Harper has had warmer more natural interactions with children than Martin. Plus, this is just funnier!
