We are new Senior Citizens on a very, very FIXED INCOME. We were not lucky enough to be able to receive a pension of sorts from when we were working, as years back a lot of companies didnot provide us the opportunity to pay into any sort of pension plan… the attitude seemed to be that it wasn’t all that important for some reason… some companies Unionized over this exact thinking…….BUT we still have to pay all the extras this government is throwing at us..and have NO Say in anything..with an attitude..JUST SEND US YOUR MONEY. Us dedicated and Loyal Nova Scotians have always been dealt very LOW BLOWS to make our way of life almost non/existent..everything goes up…except the amount in that brown envelope that comes in the mail…NO..now goes to direct deposit…

I would love to have some of our politicians TRY and live (if you want to call it that) on what we do and still pay them upfront; I really really thought that when Stephen McNeil came on the political scene…there was actually some hope that we would actually see some financial help than what had been thrown our way in the past… a glimmer of hope that we were recognized as actually being an appreciated being in our old age… but guess compassion went out the window with the word Premier of Nova Scotia attached to a Smalltown man that we thought had compassion and understanding towards an aging population that has already given their All… AMEN is all that comes to mind.
