The Liberals have posted their "platform", and it's not looking very good. I will critique it below.
"Our platform in this election has one overriding objective: to make equal opportunity a reality for every Canadian, whether you live in a big city, a small town, a remote community, a farm or a fishing village."
The only way to truly make that happen, is low taxes, and to stop thinking that we need to put in place convoluted social benefits for a few.
There is one primary thing that disgusts me about the Communist, err, um, Liberal party of Canada. If you look at almost all of the ideas they have, they are rarely, if ever, "universal". The social benefits they propose, apply to specific people of their choosing. Basically, they tend to create social benefits that benefit a special group. They present them in such away that makes the public think they are good, without a second thought; that is called "propaganda". A good example of this is their child care plan. The child care plan that the Liberals would like to put in, benefits those with dual income only, and gives the stay at home mom only two options...
- Stay at home, raise your children, and don't receive the child care benefit
- Get a job, receive the benefit, and leave your children at day care
