Pensioners And Refugees

Just received this e-mail from a friend:

Federal Government - Canadian Government Policy
It is interesting that the federal government provides a single refugee
with a monthly allowance of $1,890.00 and each can 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 or 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.

Let's send this thought to as many Canadians as we can and maybe we can
get the refugees cut back to $1,012.00 and the pensioners up to
$2,470.00, so they can enjoy the money they were forced to submit to the
Canadian government for those 40 to 50 years.

Please forward this to every Canadian you know to expose how our elected
politicians are spending our money.

Just another story you'll never see the MSM cover in this country.

The MSM did cover it.

Here's the Toronto Star article which corrects the errors that you made.
