Heavy burden

Dear Mr. Ball, I know our province is suffering from lack of funds to the low price of oil etcetera.

And I know we have to tighten our belts to pay off our debt, but do the pensioners have to bear such a heavy burden?

I just received my home insurance bill for 2016-17 and the 15 per cent sales tax your cabinet has added to insurance premiums has increased it by $400 a year. When you live on a fixed income and prices are rising on everything, don’t you think that at least you could give us a break?


A poorer pensioner,
