Duly Quoted: Mike Del Grande

“I don’t support the way that’s funded because if we’re going to do breakfast in schools, to me personally, if you have children you’re responsible for children. The nation is not supposed to be in the bedrooms of the people. But then when you come out of the bedroom and you have children, why is it the state’s responsibility to look after your children? I didn’t tell you to wear a condom or not wear a condom or how many children, you made that decision.”

—Budget Chief Mike Del Grande, speaking privately, on August 10, to Hakim Kassam, who was at the time a constituent. Kassam secretly recorded the meeting, and recently provided the recording to the Star.
