I feel like I am flogging a dead horse when I say that there is such a difference between the rules for the rich and rules for the poor. The cartoon in The Guardian on Feb. 23, 2013 by Greg Perry says it all.
Again, I am attacking the stance Stephen Harper has taken on employment insurance. The average person has no say in the process that is being forced on recipients (with Harper's stamp of approval) regarding EI home visits. He seems to have a pick on the Canadians who have little or no economic security. The bit of money they do get is not going to break the bank.
While doing research on economic abuse, I came across a tax waiver granted to the Brofman Family (Seagrams) for $800 million in 2000 (D. Francis, The Financial Post, Ottawa, Canada, Aug. 5, 2000). Another half-million was written off in 2003 for George Radwanski, federal privacy commissioner whose salary was $200,000 a year (Canadian Press 2003).
How many rich people get these breaks and we never hear about them?
Stephen Harper, get off the backs of EI recipients.
