Has anybody figured out that by the second year of the War Room, it will be the people on AISH paying for 100 per cent of it? This is only possible because the UCP deindexed AISH.
That is only the second year of deindexation. How much will the third and fourth years be costing the people with disabilities on AISH? My math for the fourth year estimates it will be about $145/month.
And while the UCP claims AISH is the highest in the country, I will point out that the Alberta MLAs are also the highest paid in Canada.
The line from the bottom to the privilege is getting stretched beyond the breaking point.
I have two questions: “What kind of person can go to church on Sunday and then persecute some of the most vulnerable in society on Monday?” And “What kind of church are these people going to?”
Any government ceases to be civilized when it perverts its authority to abuse the people it is elected to serve.
First, it will be the weak, sick, old and vulnerable that get abused and then it will be the people that look after them. The nurses, teachers, doctors, front-line workers like the police, housing and homeless workers and the list is climbing. Let me ask, “When will you be concerned? Only when they come for you? When you can’t insure your car, is that when?” Because let me remind you, we are already at that point and it will only get worse.
