Can we say...backhanded?

Thursday, July 20, 2006

So how many of you Canadian (or is it just Ontario-an?)'s knew that because of the new universal child benefit, we'd now be getting less from the old Child Care Tax Benefit?

I don't recall that included in all the triumphal trumpeting about the new benefit.

You just knew they'd justify taking money away from us, since we're getting a break here. But it's only when your kid is younger than 6. Once they turn six, you'll start getting it back. Because you'll lose the other benefit.

Don't give those parents too big a break! They might start getting lazy and actually trust the government!
