Letter to the editor: ‘Seniors get zilch’

No increases in CPP or OAS but we see everything go up, gas groceries and services, etc.

Seniors are not able to keep up with soaring inflation.

With all the upheaval of COVID and the extreme inflation, the seniors are left out again.

I see ads on TV from unions that say their members are falling behind but they are negotiating new contracts with increases.

Seniors get zilch - no increases in CPP or OAS but we see everything go up, gas groceries and services, etc.

I just went to pay my house taxes and they went up 21.5 per cent. In the last 10 years, the grant for seniors has not gone up at $275 per year but taxes have gone up a lot more.

Is there a politician that will look into fair treatment for seniors who have worked hard during all their life?
