No breaks coming for poor, disabled
I am wondering what happened to the promise the premier made during his campaign about helping the poor and disabled.
He said he was going to help with rent, food, clothing and transportation.
He also put up the personal comfort allowance for those who are unable to work, but actually how many workers give this allowance out?
And if you even try working a few hours a week, which CPP allows you, a person automatically loses his or her $71 they receive for their personal comfort allowance.
No tax break will help those who are unable to work and on social
assistance or disability, they don't pay taxes.
I know the premier has a lot to deal with but maybe he needs someone to bring up the issue, and ask like I did before with a letter and meeting with the premier’ office about these issues before the election. Nancy Riley, Cornwall
