Mr. Trudeau, what do Seniors get in the new Budget?

These truths will offend some and get support from others.

After reading this, I want you to think about those Residential Schools - while we small town and country kids were going to one-roomed schools that housed eight grades with only one teacher and our parents were buying our books, school supplies and clothing, the Indigenous native kids were in schools where they got a more balanced education, free room and board, free school books, free supplies (pencils, notebooks, etc.) and clothing. We were also abused and bullied by the heads of the schools. Oh yes, they are complaining that they lost their language. Do they think that the immigrants from Eastern Europe, were able to continue to speak their native tongue in schools? No! They learned to speak, read and write in English and were proud to have the opportunity and contribute to the development of this great country.

So, Mr. Trudeau, what do Seniors get in the new Budget?

Seniors outnumber Natives, so maybe you will resolve Seniors grievances sooner if Seniors choose to block the Trans-Canada Highway or the CN Rail lines?

When reporters ask the protesting Seniors what they want, the Seniors can answer "The same as the Natives have been getting for years." (which is free dental, free eye care, free prescriptions, free post-secondary education, free transportation, no tax on gas and other commodities, no income tax, no tax on vehicles, free housing and many other things, all paid for by us, the tax payer.)

Seniors have paid taxes all their lives! Natives do not pay taxes !!

And recently, now 600,000 Metis are considered Natives. Well Canada is also my home and Native land so I should be considered a Native to since some of us too, were born here.

Seniors want the same as the Attawapiskat Band Members received from the Federal Government in 2014, $34 million for just 1500 people (that's $22,666 each) TAX FREE!

Instead, the Federal Government pays Seniors $7,200 in Social Security (and they still have to pay tax on that) after working 50 plus years, and AFTER they've paid their own way, their own kid's way, AND the Natives' way.

And the natives are demonstrating “Idle No More” and “Pipelines”. Really??

It is time for seniors to react! We are just as entitled to protest as are the Natives.

Something is very wrong with this picture.

Send this to every senior you know

He may be right about the brain, but not the spirit. I hope he's proven himself wrong in that respect. RIP, sir!
