OAS & C.P.P. - an entitlement?
GREY POWER-- QUIET NO MORE

ONE REALLY BAD THING IS THAT A GREAT MANY SENIORS HAVE NO INTERNET TO RECEIVE EMAILS LIKE THIS ONE, I would like to state that I was NOT OPPOSED to the Canadian Government donating as a gift to Princess Charlotte 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 afloat. Doesn't make sense to me. Where in the world did the government come up with this money and WHY. 

GREY POWER-- QUIET NO MORE--POLITICIANS PAY ATTENTION!            

The Harper government is saying that at this moment they cannot afford to make changes to the C.P.P. 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 system. 

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. 

YET..... 

They have covered 'benefits' for the people of Haiti,
 ships and planes that lined up with food, water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors, and medical supplies. Now we're doing the same for the folks in Nepal.

What the HECK is wrong with us???             

WAKE UP CANADA !!!! 

Someone please tell me what is wrong with all the people who 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 events!

In the last few months we have provided aid to
 Haiti , Chile, and Turkey , as well as Kazakhstan,Pakistan, Nepal 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 charitable organizations pour hundreds of millions of
our dollars and tons of food into foreign countries! 

They call Old Age Security and Healthcare an entitlement 
even though most of us have paid 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" (read that as steal!" from these programs in the first place? 

Entitlement my Foot, I paid cash for my Old Age Security and

CANADA PENSION PLAN!!!! 

Just because they "borrowed" money from these programs,
 doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout! 

Gold plated MP pensions and 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 this e-mail creates awareness! 

DO YOUR PART! 

Things will only change when this kind of email translates into voting results at the polls. 

As of today, seniors outnumber ANY OTHER type of voter even by race, religion, or age group. 

WHEN ARE SENIORS going to wake up and understand

WE have the POWER to shape legislation? 

All WE need is the 
WILL POWER to do so! 

PLEASE SEND THIS AROUND TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS

MAYBE THEN THE "GREY REVOLUTION" will begin.
