Refugees vs Pensioners: The Assistance Debate

The Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives (Link removed - No longer exists) writes a response to a mistake which appeared in the Toronto Star. The newspaper wrote that an adult refugee recieved more than twice the amount of monthly assistance than is given to a pentioner. Refugees actually recieve much less money per month than pentioners. Instead of competing for the government funding they need, these two groups should join together to work for social justice.
