A glimmer of hope

Does Stephen Harper read my blog? (Heh. Ok, I think I know the answer to that one.)

More likely (way more likely!) he listened to Advocates for Childcare Choice and other Canadians who wanted more parental input into the care their children receive.

Instead of simply pouring billions more into institutional childcare centres, the Tories are proposing a per-child subsidy of $100 per month that would be given directly to the families. This would be combined with an additional $250 million per year for institutional childcare.

Applause, applause!

For more information, see the CBC article.

Perhaps there is hope for our nation, after all. (There is always hope with a sovereign God!)

Well whether he does or not, we know Paul Martin does.
