Canadians argue for family taxation

It seems that in Canada tough family finances are getting in the way of people having more children, even though they would actually like to do so. This needs to change if we are to overcome the problem of population aging. What is most interesting, however, is that Canadians would actually like to have more children – so there is the potential for change. The World Values Survey found that the mean ideal number of children for Canadian families was 2.7, compared to the 1.63 they are currently having (the replacement rate is 2.1).
