  3. D Peters from Alberta, Canada writes: Do you need more though? With even the low end 50K a year income with only 2K in household expenses sounds like your sitting pretty to me. I'd like more to, but I don't expect the government/taxpayer to give it to me. The taxpayer does not owe your nor me a lifestyle. I am capable, not exactly crisp, but capable of making my own way.

    You both seem capable, be proud you DON'T need handout.

    I know people with alot less that would never take a buck they didn't earn.

  6. TERRI R from Kimberley, Canada writes: Where are these people in relation to conservative membership or donors or volunteers.......These are not even remotely the citizens in Canada who need and require assisstance. This is just more like "Joe the Plumber".........This is the epitomy of the family makeup that this Government wants....Women stay at home barefoot & pregnant in the kitchen while dad goes out and earns a living.........How nice of the cons to go retro 1950s
