I do remember being the Ukranian 7 children family in a predominantly English
white Anglo Saxon elementary school where I got strapped a lot for being in
fights - usually racially motivated.

Subject: FW: What is in the Budget for Seniors?
*Trudeau, what do Seniors get in the new Budget?*
These alleged truths will offend some and get support from others.
After reading this, I want you to think about those Residential Schools -
while we small town and country kids were going to one-roomed schools that
housed eight grades with only one teacher and our parents were buying our
books, school supplies and clothing, the Indigenous native kids were in
schools where they got a more balanced education, free room and board, free
school books, free supplies (pencils, notebooks, etc.) and clothing.
We were also abused and bullied by the heads of the schools. Oh yes, they are
complaining that they lost their language. Do they think that we, the
immigrants from Eastern Europe, were able to continue to speak our native
tongue in schools? No! We all learned to speak, read and write in English
and were proud to have the opportunity and contribute to the development of
this great country.
So, Mr. Trudeau, what do Seniors get in the new Budget?
Seniors outnumber Natives, so maybe you will resolve Seniors grievances
sooner if Seniors choose to block the Trans-Canada Highway or the CN Rail
When reporters ask the protesting Seniors what they want, the Seniors can
answer "The same as the Natives have been getting for years." (which is free
dental, free eye care, free prescriptions, free post-secondary education,
free transportation, no tax on gas and other commodities, no income tax, no
tax on vehicles, free housing and many other things, all paid for by us, the
Seniors have paid taxes all their lives! Natives do not pay taxes !!
And recently, now 600,000 Metis are considered Natives. Well Canada is also
my home and Native land so I should be considered a Native since some of us
too, were born here.
Seniors want the same as the Attawapiskat Band Members received from the
Federal Government in 2014, $34 million for just 1500 people (that's $22,666
each) TAX FREE!
Instead, the Federal Government pays Seniors $7,200 in Social Security (and
they still have to pay tax on that) after working 50 plus years, and AFTER
they've paid their own way, their own kid's way, AND the Natives' Way.
And the natives are demonstrating "Idle No More" and "Pipelines". Really??
It is time for seniors to react! *We are just as entitled to protest as are
*Something is very wrong with this picture.*
Send this to every senior you know.
