Interesting article. Take A Look
Bill #C-428 [THANKS TO RUBY DHALLA AND BOB RAE]
Only if you disagree with this Bill … Pass this message along.
This bill should not have seen the light of day … And yet it will receive second reading at the next sitting of parliament.
Please read the bill and make your own decision. If you disagree with the bill send this to everyone over the age of 50 in your address book … Or those who may be turning 50 in a few years.
Hopefully by letting your member of parliament know your feelings on the bill it will be defeated.
If you agree with the bill you don’t need to do anything..
Bill C-428 will allow recent immigrants to apply for OAS in 3 years instead of the existing 10.
This bill had first reading in the house on June 18, 2009. It was seconded by Bob Rae! MP Ms Ruby Dhalla who introduced the bill represents the riding of Brampton whose population is mainly East Indian (i.e., Muslim). Right now you have to have lived in Canada for 10 years in order to qualify for Old Age Security. She wants the time reduced to 3 years. Thousands could come to Canada when they are 62 years old never having worked or contributed to this country’s tax system etc. and qualify for full Old Age Security benefits. 10 years minimum is reasonable – 3 is not!
Look this up Google C-428 and you will see this bill has only one purpose and that is to ‘featherbed’ a select group of people for votes.
I certainly hope this bill does not get passed. It is about time we called our
elected MP’s to ask them to NOT support this bill. Their response may be one factor in helping us determine who gets elected in the next election.
Keep on reading and then ACT!
What Can You Do?
1. Spread the message to family friends and e-mail buds.
2. Write letters send e-mails to all your list and call Members of Parliament
It is time Canada looked after it’s vets and long-term citizens before tossing OUR hard-earned money around on people who have no right to this money, never having paid taxes or contributed to our economy. If a family wishes to bring elderly relatives here and are willing to waive their own right to collect these funds in order that the elderly relatives can receive them … Fine.
Otherwise do not expect the Canadian taxpayers to do it.
There are too many people abusing the generosity of the Canadian people. We need to stop this NOW. We, our children and our grand children currently owe the global investment community over $500 billion dollars … The sum of our accumulated National Debt that is never publicized.
Now READ THIS…
Canada Pensions… Only in Canada
* It is interesting to know that the federal Government of Canada allows :
a.. A monthly pension of : $1,890.00 to a simple refugee
b. plus: 580.00 in social aid
A grand total of : $2,470.00 monthly
X 12 months
$28,920.00 annual income
By comparison the Old Age Pension of a senior citizen who has contributed to the development of Our Beautiful Big Country during 40 or 50 years CANNOT receive more than :
a. Amount/month $1,012.00 in Old Age Pension and Guaranteed Income Supplement
x 12 months
$12,144.00 annual income
A difference of : $16,776.00 per year
* Perhaps our senior citizens should ask for the Status of Refugee
instead of applying for Old Age Pension.
* Let us send this message to as many Canadians as possible and maybe the allowance of refugee could then be reduced to $1,012.00 and that of our Canadian pensioners (who actually deserve it) raised to $2,470.00 per month…the money that they have been paying in income taxes for 40 or 50 years — INCREDIBLE NONSENSE !!!
OUR CANADIAN SENIOR CITIZENS DESERVE BETTER
