This one is for the politicians:
I have not heard one single word from Kathleen Wynne, Tim Hudak or whatshername, oh yea, Andrea Horwath regarding any plans to help the elderly or those on disability.
Bear in mind people that the higher the minimum wage – the higher the prices of everyday items and the cost of living in general. Ontario Disability Support Program only raises the income supplement by 1% every year – while the average rent goes up by 3.25% – that alone leaves the disabled with a minus 2.25%. Many parents on ODSP skip meals so they will have that meal for their children.
I understand the push to get more jobs and help the middle income, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY NONE OF YOU ARE EVEN MENTIONING THE POOR OR ELDERLY.
SO, I ASK OF YOU, “WHAT’S UP WITH THAT?”
