Got the One Time Housing Benefit
Well I qualified for the $500 and it will be here tomorrow (this is the 14th). It will allow me to get my new TV I am in need of and with luck some sweat pants on the cheep. I'm rather annoyed that it is only online that you can get in on this with. The majority of older people I know have no access to the internet and they need the money just as much as I do. This is a heck of a fail on the part of the Liberal Party of Canada. Next month is the usual credits that I get every 4 months and they also very much help to offset the taxes I pay on items and the increased prices because of the carbon tax on shipping. Unfortunately, it does not totally cancel out the extra I pay out and trust me I'm low income. It seems in all the so called civilized countries, it is on the backs of the poor to pay out the biggest amount in tax when you scale it to their income. For some reason a great number of people thing somehow the rich getting tax breaks is good for the poor. The logic is totally flawed, but the do think it. Well, I just hope right now, they change it so people can apply in the mail or on the phone. As well most I talked to, never even heard of this extra $500. Sigh. But all I can really do it tell people.
