People of Ontario – or rather I should say, “Poor, elderly or disabled people of Ontario, SPEAK UP!!!
And for the love of whomever or whatever you perceive your gods to be, please, please, please get up and VOTE next election.
NOTHING SHALL CHANGE UNTIL WE UNITE!!!
Look at this:
How does a single father, like myself, survive healthily and support, nurture, clothe, feed and raise a teenage son when I am paying $11,000 a year on rent, $1,500 per year hydro and trying my best to give my child a good life when my disability pension is a mere $18,000?
I cannot afford to take transit and having a walking disability means I am grounded at home. I cannot afford to buy clothes or shoes for my child unless we go without food. I cannot afford cable tv.
Our income goes up a mere one percent yearly, yet, our rent goes up twice that amount. I will not even get into the hydro fiasco, lest to say it gives me much stress.
EVERY YEAR THE DISABLED AND ELDERLY GET LESS AND LESS DUE TO THE MEASLY AMOUNT WE ARE GIVEN AS AN “INCREASE”.
I hope that soon we will speak as one voice and send this poor excuse of a politician and Ontarian off packing.
I constantly write, email and voice my concern. I would appreciate if you did also.
