More on Leave…

I am a bit behind on my blog reading, but I read this post from last week this morning and I had to link to it.  It’s a post from Diane Brady on BusinessWeek’s Working Parent blog focused on the paternity benefits in Canada.  Interestingly enough, even fathers get PAID time off (government standard).  Check out the post for details.  The most interesting part of the post points to the Canadian government’s SURPLUS.  Yes, SURPLUS and they can still afford to offer paid benefits to both mothers and fathers.  Amazing.  Simply amazing.  Perhaps if our government took parenting more seriously we wouldn’t have so many issues, in our schools and otherwise.  Huh.  Just a thought.
