This is what the Socialist leader of Canada has to say:

I normally don’t post things from other countries, but many of our own political figures support stupid stuff like this. Let’s do the math:

If a mother wants to work an 8 hour job, she gets 30 minutes for lunch, plus time to get to and from work, so let’s call it 9 hours of child care per day. That also means the kid will have to be fed lunch, call it a cost of $5 for lunch. That leaves nine hours of child care for $5.

Then there is insurance, utilities, health insurance, and all other expenses, not to mention the cost of paying the childcare worker. Let’s assume that we are going to pay our childcare worker an average of $18 an hour. All expenses considered, this fictional daycare center will need to assign 65 children to each childcare worker in order for this to be feasible.

Math, it’s a thing.

I trust my child to a childcare operation that gets paid $10 a day. You get what you pay for.

    What I meant to write was that there is NO WAY I WOULD trust my child to that kind of operation. Must not have finished my first cup of coffee…

It’s not all about economics. It’s about pulling the young from their mothers so they can be raised by strangers. And indoctrinated. And the family disintegrated. Doubling the size of the workforce by forcing women into the labor pool is just the bonus.

Had to believe that Canadians fall for the stupidity spewing from the mouth of Trudeau.
He is the Sheila Jackson Lee of Canada.

    If the last several years have proven anything, it is that the overwhelming majority of Canadians are legally retarded. Decades of Socialism, scratch that, Communism has done its job.

I don’t think our ‘leaders’ suck at economics – look how many become millionaires quickly on their salaries….
Our ‘leaders’ are just incompetents at other areas…

Wishcasting substitutes for economics to the exact same degree that $#!^ will substitute for brains, in a pinch.

As Trudeau is already using that latter expedient, demonstrably for his entire adult life, the economics advice is predictable, and predictably recockulous.
