Help Canadians first

Has everyone decided how they will spend the meager 55 cent a month Increase in our Old Age Security at the end of January? It’s an insult and quite frankly, a sour joke! Please tell me what is wrong with all the people that run this Country!                   

Conservatives, Liberals & NDP all say "We're broke and can't help our own, seniors, veterans, orphans, homeless, etc?” In total Canada spends over 5 Billion a year on direct cash support of foreign aid, and many millions more on Immigration & Refugee programs. Our retired seniors and veterans are living on a 'fixed income', do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour hundreds of millions and tons of food etc into foreign countries? We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans.

Australia, UK, USA and Canada, all wealthy countries who all have homeless persons, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without needed medication and mentally ill without needed treatment etc. Yet, we still allow illegals and other free loaders on our shores and across our borders while we  line up and freely provide them with lodging, food, clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.

Imagine if “our government" gave 'us' the same support that they give to other Countries, sad isn't it?
