Quotes

"It just makes sense for everyone that they find a home that they're more comfortable (in)."
Yussuff went on to say, "The government's proposed plans don't 'share risk', they shift it onto the backs of workers and pensioners. This will do absolutely nothing to address the crisis in retirement security, and will actually make the problem worse. Picture 75-year-old pensioners relying on monthly pension cheques having to cut their food budget and turn down the thermostat, all because their pension plan has a temporary funding shortfall. That's what we're talking about here."
"Dad was the type of person who wanted to know what you drank so he'd get it in when you visited, even if it would sit there afterward because he didn't drink it" she said
"Cutting what amounts to 25% of the staff by cutting time for local news broadcasts and in-house production diminishes our ability to tell Canadian stories. Today's cuts are yet another symptom of a country being taken in the wrong direction by a government with the wrong agenda" said Yussuff
