Letter: Where is Ottawa's promised payment?


I am wondering why the federal government is waiting to pay out the one-time payment to people with disability tax credits.

People with disabilities have bills to pay, too.

The government announced this payment back in May and it is now October.

I have spoken to MP Cathy McLeod’s office and she has no updates, either. I feel like the government is just stringing people along to keep them quiet.

If there are other people feeling the same and would like payments they were promised, we all need to call our MPs and keep questioning them till we get an answer.

If you have the disability tax credit, then the $600 one-time, tax-free payment is supposed to be paid to you by the fall.

When is that payment going to be made?
