I agree, and after talking to other CPP recipients we are fed up with the dollar gouging. In my own case I bought my own home in 1997, I used $9000 RRSP to pay for the down payment. I have reported $641 as additional income every year since. I got a letter from Old age pension 2 months ago saying that I will have my supplement and cpp reduced by $120 per month until $641 is repaid and then I will receive $75 per month less from there on in.This on reported income, whats that?
I agree that we as recipients of the old age pension, CPP and supplement were to on mass speak to the government, they would be forced to listen.
Another gripe of mine is why is every government official can not look beyond next year when it comes to planning. The only thing they count on is that we will have to pay taxes and how do they spend every cent remitted here and now. There is no taking responsibility by any of them.
