Sure, in normal times, subsidies aren't required, but think it makes some sense when we are talking about during a kick-start post a global pandemic
Of course its thin. The average Canadian voter has very little knowledge about the CAF or interest in defence matters.Macleans has a platform guide. Defence is thin in all parties.

Canadians are financially illiterate and the type to buy a $50k vehicle for $60k because they can afford the payments. Just like the LPC, they believe their banking accounts will balance themselves.I thought the CPC would have learned, with people living paycheck to paycheck, they do not have money to put up front, to be reimbursed later at tax time.
So that means it doesn’t happen, right? Having you been living under a rock? People have been living outside their means for a long time just to keep up with the joneses. Big houses and new cars every few years. Look up the % of Canadians one paycheque away from insolvency.Who do you hang out with exactly? No one I know thinks that at all.
That does not mean that Canadians are financially illiterate. You make a lot of blanket statements and rarely back it up.So that means it doesn’t happen, right? Having you been living under a rock?

ends up pregnant
Do I need to explain how babies happen?Single parents usually merit support, but it'd be nice to stop talking about pregnancy as something that just "happens" to people.
Some people do, and others are simply not in financially able to do things.You might think it unbelievable, but there are high rollers who also manage to live only one paycheque from insolvency. Just have to scale up the spending. But the few of those aside, I find myself wondering how it is that I've managed to - across my years - "hang out" with so many people who spend a lot of time living with maxed out credit.
Just because they did doesn't mean they should.People have managed to live their lives, including with children, for millennia without government support; some as recently as in the past few years!
We have been over this before.Works the other way, too. Why shouldn't they? (That actually has an answer: resources are finite, and there are more pressing needs.)
I have met a lot of people like that. Some people are sitting on a lot of wealth as i see houses bought all around me for 4-5 times what i paid and then doing 60-100 thou in reno's. But there are a lot of decent people out there that live paycheck to paycheck as inflation has stripped away their buying power.Who do you hang out with exactly? No one I know thinks that at all.
We've been over this as well, society decides what services it provides.I know we've been over that. Why is it someone else's responsibility to pay for that, instead of, say, more money for health care to deal with the backlog of treatments delayed by COVID restrictions?
There is there is just the awkward part where 20 percent of the population needs to pay for the needs of 30 percent of the population.A demographic crunch would one of the best ways of mitigating various kinds of damage. Fewer people, less impact. (There is a good reason for increasing population, but I'll wait and see whether you stumble across it.)
You don't need to care. Nobody is forcing you to care. But so long as society cares? ShrugsWe know what causes pregnancy, and there are cheaper ways of dealing with it. Those who want pregnancy without consequences are SOL; the consequences are huge. Most unplanned pregnancies involve people who just don't give a sh!t; where their welfare is concerned, I am perilously close to being equally indifferent.
Sure.Things that might be helpful aren't mandatory.
