That is not even close to the amount of money that would be required to provide top level education and care for every child in Canada, 8 hrs
Ah...of course it's not, but it is for the 4 kids that live in my house hold. That's not including my husbands income. We are on the affluent end of
the middle class.
Why? They already provide a school...filled with educators. You can send your child there, same as everybody else.
No, currently they provide sub standard facilities, with sub standard teachers and overall, sub standard education. I won't apologize for expecting
what I payed for.
If your community is too small for that level of service...move. This Canadian has zero intention of paying for your overinflated sense of self
I live in NB, in the largest city. Overinflated?
You think that you are getting what you deserve? You are currently HAPPY with being a Canadian, giving up that much of your hard earned dollars in
return for what you currently have?
My god, the people in this country never cease to amaze me. Canadian Apathy at it's finest eh?. It's our largest export you know. It's not my
self worth either, it's what I consider my children to be worth.
The future of our nation, meaning our children, deserve the absolute best education that money can afford. What we sink in to education should be
enough, considering other nations with the same level of spending have much higher quality educational programs, both at primary and secondary
Oh, but no, it's being entitled to request that the Government actually do it's damn job and use the hundreds of thousands of dollars I provide in a
way that makes sens and is beneficial to ME and my countrymen.
As far as I'm concerned, the general person, regardless of country, could use a little more self entitlement. We could use a populace that actually
stood up and demanded quality from those they elect to represent them.
ETA: As for what I do, I'm currently retired, but I ran a successful series of businesses and my husband is a pediatrician. As you can imagine, the
taxes we pay are quite high.
