I am not a senior demanding more during the pandemic. I live in Alberta and am a senior demanding that the UCP stop gouging us.
First, I am paying more Alberta tax than last year. Second, I will have to pay $85 for my doctor to initial a form to say I am fit to drive at 84 years of age. This payment is a new Kenney gouge of seniors over 80 who are mandated to have a doctor’s OK every two years.
Since my doctor has all my records on his computer and since I get all my blood work done every two years and since I am not on any prescriptions, then all my doctor has to do is tick off everything. It takes him two minutes to tick off the boxes!
But I as a non-rich senior have to pay $85 for the privilege to drive my car about 5,000 kilometres per year! Thank you Mr. Kenney so much for getting rid of the carbon tax for which I received rebates equal to what I paid and for increasing all my taxes, insurance and more.
I expect a reply from you. I hope you don’t ignore my post as I am past your best-before age of 82!
