And they shouldn't.
It is not the government's place to dictate how we raise our kids or how daycares operate.
Solberg was unapologetic about dumping the Liberal plan in favour of putting more money into direct support for families.
This includes a taxable $100-a-month allowance for all children under the age of six that dates back to July 2006, and a refundable tax credit of $2000 for each child under the age of 18 contained in the latest budget.
The article from CTV that I blogged on earlier missed that point. $2k per child under 18 tax credit! Yes! That's awesome. Finally, something that doesn't screw the single-income, multiple child family. Even better, the more kids you have (for example, one of my sister-in-law has five kids and the other will have five in July) the more this helps you.
"There is a huge philosophical difference (with the Liberals), and we think we're right," [Solberg] declared. "We think that parents are the best place to make judgments about what's right for their family at any given time."
And he's absolutely right. Parents do know what's best for their families. They do not need a heavy-handed government telling them what to do with regards to raising their children and managing the day-to-day of their lives.
