I'm putting this here because it's a transparent attack on women:
At the end of a speech on Alberta's economy to the Economic Club of Canada in Toronto, [Finance Minister Iris] Evans spoke about the importance of teaching kids about finances and how those lessons can be empowering.
She also said good parenting means sacrificing some income to stay at home while kids are young, as her children have done.
"They've understood perfectly well that when you're raising children, you don't both go off to work and leave them for somebody else to raise," Evans said. "This is not a statement against daycare. It's a statement about their belief in the importance of raising children properly."
She also said a lack of education is ruining the upbringing of some children and leading to mental illness and crime.
"The huge failure of Canadians is not to educate the children properly, and then why should we be surprised when they have mental illnesses or commit dreadful crimes?" she said. "We've really got to focus on that properly, and it should be financial literacy as well as anything else."
