Default Only in Canada....

Is this true?

In Canada do not apply for your old age pension. Apply to be a refugee.

It is interesting that the federal government provides a single refugee with a monthly allowance of $1,890.00 and each can get an additional $580.00 in social assistance for a total of $2,470.00.

This compares very well to a single pensioner who, after contributing to the growth and development of Canada for 40 or 50 years, can only receive a monthly maximum of $1,012.00 in old age pension and Guaranteed Income Supplement.

Maybe our pensioners should apply as refugees!


If it is....

Break out the down coats and the long johns!!!!!!!!!!

,here I come

Yeah, but I'd have to leave my rifles, pistols, and shotguns here in the US. Nah, I'd still take my chances here instead of crossing the border to be a "refugee". At least I'll never freeze to death in Florida.
