ONE REALLY BAD THING IS THAT A GREAT MANY SENIORS HAVE NO INTERNET TO RECEIVE
EMAILS LIKE THIS ONE, SO SNAIL MAIL AND TELEPHONE ARE ALSO NEEDED...
On top of all this stuff that you can read below I would like to state that I was NOT OPPOSED to the Canadian Government donating as a gift a blanket to Prince George BUT I do have a hard time understanding the government donating $100,000. to a children's charity in England while people in High River and seniors are struggling to stay a float. Doesn't make sense to me. Where did the government come up with this money and WHY.
GREY POWER-- QUIET NO MORE -- POLITICIANS PAY ATTENTION!
The Harper government is saying that at this moment
they cannot afford to make changes to the CPP.
They are also saying that seniors will have to start paying for
meds and health care after age 65 because of the strain on the
I think that it is time that we let him know what we think ........
CANADA: a country where we have:
…. homeless without shelter,
…. children going to bed hungry,
…. hospitals being closed,
…. average income families who can't afford dental care,
…. elderly going without 'needed' meds and having to travel
100's of miles for medical care with no reimbursement of cost,
…. vehicles we can't afford gas for,
…. lack of affordable housing,
…. mentally ill without treatment, etc.,etc.
They have a 'Benefit' for the people of Haiti, ships and planes
lining up with food, water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors, and
What’s wrong with us??? ……………. WAKE UP CANADA !!!!
Someone please tell me what the is wrong with all the people
that run this country!
We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans,
Homeless, etc. …… yet we spent 1.2 billions of dollars for G-20
In the last few months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile ,
and Turkey , as well as Khazakistan , Pakistan and all the others -
literally, BILLIONS of OUR dollars!!
Imagine if the GOVERNMENT gave 'US' the same support they give
to other countries.
Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid
nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious
organizations pour hundreds of millions of dollars and tons of food
into Foreign Countries!
They call Old Age Security and Healthcare an entitlement even
though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and
now when IT'S time for us to collect, the government is running out
of money ?
Why did the government borrow from these programs in the first
Entitlement ? I paid cash for my Old Age Security and CPP!!!!
Just because they borrowed money from these programs, doesn't
make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!
Gold plated MP pensions and Civil Service Government benefits,
a.k.a. free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid
holidays, 20 weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days --- now
that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call me a 'greedy
senior' and my retirement, an entitlement.
Sad isn't it?
Lets hope it creates awareness!
DO YOUR PART!
Things will only change when this kind of email translates
into voting results at the polls.
As of today, seniors out number ANY OTHER type of voter even
by race, religion, or age group.
WHEN ARE SENIORS going wake up and understand WE have the
POWER to shape legislation?
All WE need is the will power to do so!
FORWARD THIS TO EVERYBODY !!! 99% of people won't have the
guts to forward this. I'm one of the 1% -- I Just Did.
