  1. so awesome

  2. great videođź‘Ť

  3. The payment should have been means tested. The minister said that most seniors live on less than $50,000 per year but those on GIS live on about $20,000 or less. The additional expenses because of Covid19 have been much harder on the poorest seniors.

  4. and I thought liberals cared? nope

    Why so long.
    Why so little

    Not large enough.
    They suffer at every turn
    Have they not been through enough

    They have always been heavily impacted.

    Ever more so now.

    This is not even a drop in the bucket for seniors.

    They already live on nothing.

    It’s the Generation of seniors who have worked hard all their lives.

    And have been given the least.

  7. so with thousands of seniors in nursing homes, who will get the extra oas, gis, $? Will long term care homes keep that increase?
