This Day In Clarkland...Is An Another Independent Officer Of The BC Government About To Get Knee-Capped?


After all, if Seniors' Advocate Isobel Mackenzie runs around news releasing stuff like the following, even if it is wrapped up in the form of a poopy-centered sandwich...

BC’s Seniors Advocate, Isobel Mackenzie, is expressing concerns about the declining income of seniors, which is particularly acute in BC relative to other parts of the country, according to Statistics Canada’s latest income survey released last week.

“The most recent income data from Statistics Canada has some really good news for BC two-parent families. Their median income has increased 9.7% and far outpaces the national average.

However, for seniors in BC, the story is the complete opposite,” stated Mackenzie. Since 2013, BC senior families saw their annual median income fall 5.7% and for a BC single senior, the decline is even steeper, with a 6.3% drop since 2013.This compares to the national averages, which show a 1.9% increase for senior families and a 2.3% increase for single seniors...


...Nationally, the percentage of Canadians aged 65 and over living on low incomes rose to 12.5%. In particular, 30% of single, elderly women are considered low income—triple the level of two decades ago...

Luckily for the Wizards of Clarklandia disaffected old folks don't vote.


Meanwhile, look for an 'Unlock The Equity Of Old Folks!'-type missive from the Condo King coming soon...
Finally, if it's Friday afternoon it must be time for...A Booze Announement!

Since I retired my wife and I really look for food and other deals.We feel squeezed in all areas. $35 a month to read my meter because we wouldn't install a not so smart meter on top of hydro increases.MSP, ICBC, taxed to the max as Tower of Power sang.

Seniors can vote next year. Let us hope they are smart enough to vote their own interests instead of Christys

Voters have only themselves to blame. They kept voting for the BC Lieberals
