So it appears that the public is funding chilcare for the Trudeau family under the guise of official function. My problem with this isn't that they're getting public money for this. Maybe as PM, it is "part of the office", maybe a "perk".
What gets me though is how hypocirtical it is. During the election, the Libs attacked the NDP's childcare proposal and offered a tax credit instead. The problem with a tax credit is it is money later, and not necessarily enough. The Trudeau's, Canadas premiere "power-couple", are getting real time funding for this while everyone else under junior's plan would have to wait with no gaurantee they'd benefit in any susbstantial way under the tax code.
The NDP got it wrong on child care. They should have said we're going to tax Corproations and use the money to fund national childcare. But to see Trudeau immeidately take adantage of the public purse, especialy given the fact he ie wealty man, married to a woman with a susbstatial professional career where she earns/earned high income is galling.

This is simply entitlement. It is more of the same. Its more of a few crumbs for the masses and pletnty for them. The hypocracy here is breath taking. Its shows his priorities. He gets help immeidiately and everyone else can wait to see if they are going to get enough. This is galling.
Again, as PM, I suppose you can argue this is necessary, though why they need 2 aides for three children is beyone me. But if the public purse is good enough for the Trudeaus, shouldn't it be open and good enough for the public?
