It's Time Seniors Got Off Their Butts And Fought Back

 Time we paid attention!
  OAS & CPP - an entitlement? GREY POWER-- QUIET NO MORE


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.


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
medical supplies.

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!


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.


Is Secession Our Next Step in BC?

I have lived in BC most of my life. I love this province. We have everything you could imagine for Scenery. Their are mountains (the highest in the country) valleys and gorges, deserts, rain forests, freshwater lakes and rivers. Pristine barely describes it.

I love this country too. I have seen it from coast to coast and have been as far north as Frobisher Bay (I think they call it Iqaluit now.) That's what it was called for thousands of years before the Europeans.

But the country is broken.

The fractures began slowly a long time  ago But with the Harper Cons it has accelerated at breakneck speed. And BC is feeling the brunt of the breakage.

When BC was sucked into Confederation:
Helmcken felt that B.C. was geographically too distant from the rest of Canada for proper communication with the east. B.C. would have little political influence, he argued, and would be subject to policy decisions made far away. This is still a concern of westerners today. 

 The final Terms of Union stated that Canada would "assume and defray the charges for" certain stated services, including "Protection and encouragement of fisheries." No attempt was made to define either Dominion or Provincial responsibility or jurisdiction, and fisheries questions have since been taken to the Privy Council at least twice.


From Alexandra Mortons blog: The World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), our global first line of defence against farm animal epidemics, just stacked the odds against stopping ISA virus from spreading in British Columbia. They stripped the lab I am using to track ISA virus of its international certification.

290 conditions: But the panel has attached 209 conditions, which cover everything from protecting caribou habitat to research into how the oil would behave in a marine environment.

 Enbridge said in a news release that it will "work toward" meeting the conditions. This blogger believes this statement to mean they might look at the conditions and study them to death but they have no intention of meeting them.They have already insulted the First Nations by failing to have "meaningful consultations".And believe me when I say that right now the natives are our last line of defense.

The Feds themselves said that Enbridge has a insufficient spill response plan. 2012 Postmedia

Yet Harper continues to defend them.

Rabble:  during this time, we have seen the federal majority Conservative government gut Canada’s environmental laws through omnibus bills and streamline the review process for future major resource projects all in what would appear to be an attempt to roll out these projects regardless of the risks and objections. Now we hear the feds want to cut $100 million from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO).

And now Harper is dismantling the DFO further.  http://grist.org/news/canadas-energy-officials-take-over-job-of-protecting-fish-from-pipelines/

I allege that all of this  bullshit is part of a master plan. What it is I don't exactly know but I'm leaning toward the destruction of all the wild fish so the Salmon Farms can take over the fishery.

Sound crazy? Think about it. With no wild salmon the argument that the  pipeline and tankers will go out the window. The Salmon farmers will do what should have been done in the first place. Move on shore.

With pipelines breaking over our waterways (read spawning runs) and tankers rupturing in Douglas Channel the fish will be wiped out Birds and animals will die off and the mining companies like Teck can build their mines wherever and whenever they want and acidic tailings will further pollute the land and water.

The food chain will crumble and food will be out of reach for the poor and middle class.Only the rich will be able to afford to live. Why? Because they are the ones who paid off the politicians to get what they wanted and destroyed it all..

And the irony is that we let it happen. WE HAD THE VOTE! But we let  big business do their thing and pay to have the laws changed and rearranged to their liking. WE HAD THE VOTE. And we didn't use it properly. We let this happen. And right now in British Columbia we are paying the price. And we can't expect help from Ontario and Quebec. They hold the balance of power but I fear they don't have a clue what's happening out here.

So what's left? I believe that right now or at least before 2015 we should start proceedings toward Secession.before we hit the point of no return.
