Back in the 1990's, Bob Rae's government attempted something similar to what is recommended here. If I remember the numbers correctly, welfare payments for single parents nearly doubled and increased for additional children. Teen pregnancies skyrocketed. Young women left their parents' homes before finishing their education. Legal Aid was nearly bankrupted as young mothers were required to seek support from fathers who had no ability to pay (children suing children.) Nominal support orders exploded and the new statistics supported a dramatic rise in "dead beat dads" when in fact a fiction had been created.
