BLATANT LIBERAL MIS-USE OF PUBLIC MONEY... AGAIN
by National Leader Ron Gray
In the '70s, I worked with a man named Charles Long to help develop a new
public information agency for the Federal Government. Our goal was for
government to serve the public better. The department was headed by the
urbane Jean-Louis Gagnon; his Assistant Deputy Minister was Tom Axworthy.
They were all very emphatic as they laid down guidelines for the agency:
"It would be immoral to use public money in any way to influence public
opinion," Long stressed.
That kind of commitment to principles seems to have died in Ottawa during
the last 30 years. Today, it's a sure sign of an impending election if you
see a sudden flood of government advertising on television-expounding the
virtues of the governing party's policies.
And it's happening again, right now.
I don't know the cost of it - you can be certain it's in the millions of
dollars - but I know who's paying for the Federal Government's current
campaign of warm, heart-tugging ads about children; you and I are. And it's
election advertising for the Liberals.
And I know who those ads are intended to benefit. Not the children!
No, these ads cater to the lucrative part of the daycare industry that is
the big push behind the Liberal Party's plan to spend $12 to $15 billion a
year of your money - more than $150 a month of new taxes to be imposed on
every Canadian family - to warehouse Canada's children - even though
research shows it's not good care for the children, and more than 80% of
parents don't want it.
Three main groups would benefit from this juggernaut, being so carefully
orchestrated to "sovietize" Canadian children: 1 - The biggest group of
parents using daycare is NOT "needy single moms": it's upper-middle-class,
two-income families that want a second BMW in their suburban driveway. 2 -
The biggest beneficiaries are not daycare workers, who mostly get only
minimum wages. It's the highly-paid educators whose cushy careers depend on
an ever-expanding market for programs to train those minimum-wage w
orkers. By the way, they don't call it "daycare training" any more; they
call it "early childhood education". But it's still warehousing the kiddies.
3 - The Liberal Party of Canada is the Parliamentary lobby for the daycare
industry. What will the Liberals get in return? Lots of organized help -
including fundraising and campaign workers - from the "early childhood
And you and I pay the bill for all of it.
Thirty years ago, the misuse of public money was called "corruption". You
can see it tonight, on your TV screen.
Oh, Canada! Who stands on guard for thee?
