While it frightens me to agree with any member of the board of control on anything, I agree London should not put forth anymore money toward child care. Of course, I suspect their reasoning has more to do with their desire to control the city coffers (your money) than a moral outrage at the idea that you are paying for irresponsible absentee parenting. The idea that anyone would be willing to sentence a child to spend its most formative years in a government institution indicates unforgivably poor parenting skills.
"The optics probably aren't that good because it's Christmas and any perception that you're withholding funds for children is not going to play very well with the public," Paul Nesbitt-Larking, a political science professor at Huron University College at the University of Western Ontario, said yesterday.
