    Public funds come and go through transfer funds with Provinces. If you pay taxes to your municipal, provincial and federal governments you are essentially funding the government welfare purse. IF you live in Alberta your home province funds the rest of the country with oil resources! LOL

    Law of a democratic society. We give we take.

      LMAO! Now, the problem with this is that it doesn't support Capitalism; lululemon would broke if support for this caught on!

        No- however my bf is originally from that area and we visit his family often... I actually just went to the farmers market for the very first time a few weeks ago. I am talking Bruce/Grey County.

            I don't think 'octo-mom' is a good example for the 'having kids while poor' debate.

            The woman has been in porn, and tried to have 'octo-kids' as a means of attaining fame, or atention.

            Clearly, she is is slightly different case to be considered than the average person.
            Don't you think?

              My best friend had a child at 16. When he was born my father took me to camp to have a 'father'/'daughter' chat.

              He explained very clearly that should I ever get the idea in my head that I become pregnant so I can collect benefits I had another thing coming. Back then, social welfare was distributed by towns and my father was on council, so the fear of being denied funding and having my child taken away by my parents to raise (cause I had no money after all) was fear enough for me.

              Entitlement isn't bred into every woman Slughead. And funny, I have seen a few men who have had entitlement bred into them as well.

              My children are too young right now but I have thought about it. Sure would like to use that 'talk' on my kids when the time comes, but I just don't know if it would fly nowadays.

                To be frank here;

                There are all sorts of people, male and female who feel they are entitled. They push their weight around and yell the loudest.

                An unreasonable sense of entitlement is actually one of the traits of Narcissism. While this can be a disorder that affects both genders, it tends to affect more men than women. (based on statistics - not on personal opinion)

                Narcissism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

                Entitlement: Narcissists hold unreasonable expectations of particularly favorable treatment and automatic compliance because they consider themselves special. Failure to comply is considered an attack on their superiority, and the perpetrator is considered an "awkward" or "difficult" person. Defiance of their will is a narcissistic injury that can trigger narcissistic rage.
