from the ol’ coots gallery.

Here’s a letter from the disgruntled ol’coot letters section in Sunday’s Edmonton Journal. I think this senior Alberta really missed the mark on what she should be advocating for. It sounds like her beef is the Alberta Old Age Pension Program rather than everyone else who isn’t her.

The future is now

Putting surplus money away for future generations is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of. My future is right now.

I am 80 years old and my only source of income is the old age pension. I need all the help I can get right now, so if Albertans have no use for a rebate cheque, send it to me.

I will make good use of it buying food, gasoline, heat, electricity and clothing.
