Thank You Monsieur Martin

I believe when the election was called, Mr. Marin said that he was upset with the conservatives and the NDP because they had stopped crucial legislation that was already in the works, one of which was the Energy cost Benefit.

Yesterday, I looked into my mailbox and found a cheque from the government. I thought this is early to be getting my child tax benefit and we have already received our GST cheque so what is it? I opened it to find a cheque with a note attached that said,

“As a recipient of the National Child Benefit Supplement,
you are eligible for the enclosed Energy cost benefit (ECB)…
blah blah blah.”

I would just like to thank Mr. Martin for rushing this program through so I could receive my cheque just before the election next Monday. That was so kind of you. I can’t help but wonder about the timing though, are you trying to buy my vote?

Heeheehee...you must be a very special voter, we didn't get one of those! Martin must know that I am a lost cause and doesn't wantt o spend his $$ on me!

Buying votes. Good one. I'd say more but... politics. You know.

hehehe, I'm curious if he was able to buy your vote.

Money has no influence on my vote. I will just take it and finish paying off my credit card. That is why I say thanks

Proud Mum said...

That is so awesome.

I was just teasing, anyway. I may not know you personally, but I was pretty sure from what I've read from you that you were a judicious voter.

(ps: totally jealous that you're at the "paid off" stage.)
