There are so many people here in Canada who REALLY NEED assistance in one form or another but they get NOTHING. I know......I fell ill with cancer and the only money CANADA could give me was 15 lousy weeks of(EMPLOYMENT INSURANCE).Talk about insurance eh> I worked without stopping for 38 years and paid my taxes. But My country does not give a hoot about me.
But they do save a criminal who is stuck in another country...yesseree.
I am confused as to where the government priorities are.
So now,no more donations to any foundation or whatever fundraiser who wants my money. Go see Harper...he got lots.I guess Brenda Martin will now be on welfare eh?
geeeeze.... what a friggin' farce.

Get a job and pay back the 82K Brenda. As for the whom ever approved the funds, you should be ashamed of yourself!
