The 84-year-old Quebec, who wrote a letter to the Prime Minister condemning his precarious financial situation, was of the opinion that the new sums announced were inadequate.

“It’s not strong,” she announced in an interview with TVA Nouvelles.

With Thursday’s announcement, Fernando Donaldson will receive a one-time check for $ 275 to counter the rising cost of living. Its annual amount increases from $ 200 to $ 400. In all, the 84-year-old woman will receive an additional $ 475 this year.

Apparently unsatisfactory amount, believed to be a retired person.

“It simply came to our notice then. We also need to be able to live like everyone else. We do not live, we exist, ”said Fernando Donaldson.

“For us, it’s money, we want to have more and more to wear every month. How do you want us to spend for that?” She adds.
