I understand your conservative libertarian bent anyway.

ROFLMAO... then you don't understand me in the least! Which only goes to show how little you really know.

The problem in my jurisdiction or perhaps issue is the better term, is part of the separation of powers, aspects of public services given power and autonomy to the Provinces, child care isn’t one of them, whereas education is, go figure. 

Your jurisdiction is neither the US nor Japan.

In the US, the term “Separation of Powers” was coined by the 18th century philosopher Montesquieu. Separation of powers is a model that divides the government into separate branches, each of which has separate and independent powers. By having multiple branches of government, this system helps to ensure that no one branch is more powerful than another. Typically, this system divides the government into three branches: the Legislative Branch, the Executive Branch, and the Judicial Branch. The United States federal government and forty states divide their governments into these three branches.

In the US, Child Care falls under the Judicial branch of government.

40 U.S. Code § 590 - Child care: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/40/590

So you cannot compare or attempt to compare apples with oranges when your government doesn't specify the differences and or where child care falls within your government's organization!

Provincial Governments can only work the edges, so to speak, creating these universal child benefit packages, giving a certain amount of money per child per household which in theory could be used to afford child care, although often isn’t.

Can be used but isn't... sounds like a broken system if you ask me!

And might I remind you, the US also has numerous similar problems too.

FWIW

Your provinces seem to operate at a higher level than our states do.

Our debt can’t be covered with tax increases anymore.

They also find that their positions can bring them unheard of wealth.  If that isn’t true, why do they go to DC with modest incomes or investments and leave ridiculously well off?

That is very complex. Are any of those paid positions? Did you like the job? The closest we have to that are HOAs, but that affects only a small percentage of homes. We also have Neighborhood Watch, but only for safety.

Governments always want to take over education.

That sounds rude.  He knows a lot and has made assumptions based on your posts.  Also, Libertarian here is a political party where he is talking about an ideology.

I wouldn't say that at all, States rights are way more important vs the Federal Government than our split jurisdictions and powers here.

I'm not sure what's better, Now granted I'm not a parent so my stake in he education argument is based purely on wanting a society of educated people; personally I think Government *can* be part of the solution, but ideologies cloud so much of that judgement, but just to give a local example, I know so many graduated students who achieved degrees in human rights disciplines and work dead end jobs to this day, or can't increase their earning potential, very recently our Provincial Government switched tacts and is trying to switch away from humanities into disciplines that will generate employment post convocation, which I agree with.
