In an attempt to alleviate the financial hardship that many seniors are experiencing because of the pandemic, the federal government recently announced the following one-time tax free payments for seniors: those in receipt of the CPP, OAS and the GIS will receive $500, while those in receipt of the CPP and the OAS, will receive $300. I seriously question the wisdom of giving $300 to all seniors regardless of their financial situation, but that is not why I am writing this letter. I would like to pocket the $300 I am about to receive and can find any number of reasons for doing so. But instead, I shall put my $300 where my mouth is and contribute to an organization on the frontlines struggling to make Canada a healthier, fairer and better place to live. What about you?
