WATCH: Ontario PC leadership candidate says $15-a-day child care “takes away your obligations as a parent”

Yikes. Guess we can add a check mark to Lisa MacLeod’s name on the list of people who don’t support a $15-a-day national child care program. “This is just the extension of a government policy that is bound and determined to have our children raised by the state rather than raised by us,” MacLeod, a […]

Yikes.

Guess we can add a check mark to Lisa MacLeod’s name on the list of people who don’t support a $15-a-day national child care program.

“This is just the extension of a government policy that is bound and determined to have our children raised by the state rather than raised by us,” MacLeod, a leadership candidate for the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party, told the Ontario Legislature this week.

This “babysitting bureaucracy” will “eliminate parental choice” and “parental responsibility,” added the MPP for Nepean-Carleton, who went on to suggest that creating a $15-a-day child care program for working parents is equivalent to the government seizing babies “at six months old and put[ting] them into an institutionalized setting until they’re 18.”

Just to be clear, MacLeod added, “they think it is the government’s job to look after your child. And in so doing, they take away your obligations as a parent.”

“I, as a Progressive Conservative, believe that the best person to look after your child is you.”

MacLeod made the comments during a debate in the Ontario legislature on a motion tabled by Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath to encourage the province to pursue a $15-a-day child care agreement with the federal government. The motion passed with support of the Liberals.

Conservative candidate tells CBC that renewable energy supporters are “extremists”

Holy black-and-white logic, Ron Liepert!

Liepert, a former Alberta Energy Minister and Conservative candidate for Calgary Signal Hill in the upcoming 2015 election, delivered a master class in ad hominem reasoning this week for listeners of CBC Radio’s The Current.

Debating the Keystone pipeline with Greenpeace Canada’s Keith Stewart, Liepert repeatedly complained of “extreme environmentalists” with “extreme arguments” waging “extreme environmental attacks on Alberta’s oil industry” for calling for a transition to renewable energy sources.

After labelling critics of unsustainable oil and…
