Here's what Ontario can do about child support arrears: https://www.separation.ca/help-centre/child-support/enforcing-child-support/ That's a pretty full list and still there's $2 BILLION owed in back child support in Ontario. I have a special thing against deadbeat parents - it's the one thing nobody should EVER let go -- yet so many do. Borrow whatever - sell whatever - go without whatever - but you gotta do it. In full and on time. I speak from experience. Now, if they could cut people off in bars and at the liquor store for back child support ... I feel strongly, but not quite so strongly, about student debt - mostly I have a "thing" for those individuals who are not trying hard enough, or at all - or flatly refuse to pay at all - ever - and around here, there are far too many of those. Life should be made very difficult for these people. For as long as it takes. They've earned it. Maybe I'm like this because I was a debt collector for a living - or because I paid child support - in full and on time - no matter what - for a lot of years - I dunno. But I'm still firm on this stuff. I don't see that changing.
