Veteran objects to extra assistance
My name is Simon Lemay and I am a 26-year-old Canadian Armed Forces veteran and I would like to express something that has bothered me for a while.
I have worked and paid taxes all my life and I accept the facts that when I go to the dentist or require special attention I have to pay extra money. It is the way it is.
I had to pay my mortgage like every other Canadian did or will.
But what gets me is when refugees arrive on our soil they are automatic Canadians and get all the services that I have to pay for nothing including rent, dental plus spending money on the side and a $25,000 allowance per year. Some will end up going on social assistance.
I feel like a second class Canadian in my own country and I don’t think it is fair, especially when our economy is not doing so good. I do believe that a good majority of Canadians feel this way Simon Lemay, North Rustico
