Just read about this yesterday and have mixed opinions. Bad that it is used close to an election and good that it helps out the needy. Low income earners usually have more kids than higher earners so it will be a windfall for some, people with no kids must be thinking WTF why am I subsidising someone else's kids. In the end it will be a waste of 2 billion dollars. Harpers version is that it is taxable and Trudeau wants it tax free if he is elected, heard nothing about Mulcair but he is for giving everyone lots of free stuff.
Just my opinion.
