How has the father's objection been interpreted in the context of child support?

Nova Scotia, Canada


The following excerpt is from D.M.C.T. v L.K.S., 2007 NSFC 22 (CanLII):

65 The father’s biggest objection is simply that the mother is not and has not been employed outside the home. That bothered him immensely in 1995 and still does today. His counsel argues that it is inconsistent with any principle of fairness, (citing various passages in Francis v. Baker), that she contributes nothing financially to the child’s support. He does not accept that with the boy in school all day that she should not have a job. He argues that child support is the obligation of both parents.
