It's not the case. It's just that the Watanabe et al article was from 2005 and everything was all rosy then. This is from 2012:

LOL. I keep asking myself the last question, but then I'm just an import.

The religious exemption was for the child care benefit/family tax benefit. Not allowed any longer.

Based on the comments online, the vast majority are giddy with happiness and can't see the wider issues. There's maybe a fraction of people who post along the lines of, "I vaccinate, but…" and talk...

I don't have any evidence that waiting the one year is significant. I think it's just the time when most kids start attending school full-time.

Let's just say it was a different vibe here 5+ years ago (and three Prime Minsters ago, LOL). Like I mentioned elsewhere, good thing we have options.
