    Canadian Government Seniors' Pension Policy

    Stardate 4102.5

    It is interesting that the federal government provides a single refugee with a monthly allowance of $1,890.00 and each can also get an additional $580.00 in social assistance for a total of $2,470.00. This compares very well to a single pensioner who after contributing to the growth and development of Canada for 40 to 50 years can only receive a monthly maximum of $1,012.00 in old age pension and Guaranteed Income Supplement.

    Maybe our pensioners should apply as refugees! Lets send this to all Canadians, so we can all be ticked off and maybe we can get the refugees cut back to $1,012.00 and the pensioners up to $2,470 00 and enjoy some of the money we were forced to submit to the Government over the last 40 or 50 years.

    Now don't get me wrong. I have no problems with welcoming refugees into our great country. Most of us cannot even begin to fathom what some people have to live with every day of their lives... from poverty and brutal weather to tyrannical governments to religious persecution and worse. However, letting people into the country is one thing, but to actually give them MORE money than seniors who have been working hard in this nation for decades and paying for what scraps they get when they retire... Something is definately wrong there. Cripes that is nearly the sort of monthly income I make and I have 10 years experience in my field and I have been with this company now for nearly 5 years!
