Just a quick post to say a very belated thanks to Mad Hatter and Jen at One Plus Two were kind enough to award me one of February's Just Post Awards for my Code Blue for Daycare rant.
I'm absurdly pleased by this. And be warned, I'm also encouraged. Just this morning, I choked on reading in the Citizen that Stephen Harper was quoted as telling party supporters this weekend, "We must always think first of the unspoken interests of millions of working families."
It's a lovely platitude, but Harper's policies have been anything but working-family friendly. First, the universal child care benefit, which is neither universal nor child care. Now, rustlings in the wind that they are considering income splitting for families. I could go on, but I don't want to sully this proud moment with another rant.
Instead, just a simple thank you to Mad Hatter and Jen and all the people who participate in the Just Post movement every month. Get on over to their blogs and take a look at some of the excellent posts from this month alone. It will do you good.
