Shame of you, Mr. Trudeau

Dear Editor,

I’m appalled that our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has the audacity to class a senior 75 years and up for an increase in OAS plus a one-time lump sum of $500.

According to the prime minister, they have more expenses than if you were 65 to 74 years. How does he know what expenses anyone has? There are a lot of seniors that do not have a work pension coming in, only CPP and Guaranteed Income Supplement. A senior is a senior at 65 years and older. To top it off, because the NDP do not want an election because of the pandemic, they go along with this and pass it. Shame on you Mr. Trudeau, and the NDP, and whomever else agreed to this crap.
