Poor People Cheques

Posted on Wed, Jul 13, 2011 at 11:16 AM

Hey government, there aren't many things I wish to thank you for lately, but I will give credit where it is due. I really did need that GST poor person's savings credit or whatever you call it (let's face it, it's for poor people). I was down to $0.75 for another 14 days until that came in the mail, by chance, at the very last minute. Thanks for randomly issuing that cheque. With unemployment so high, it's likely I'll keep needing it for a few more years until my skills and education can serve this province. But until then, thanks. I couldn't have gone another day without food. —Good Timing
