Starting today, low and modest-income Canadians and families will begin receiving their new, one-time Grocery Rebate. This targeted inflation relief will provide up to an extra $467 for families of four; up to an average of $225 for seniors; and up to $234 for single Canadians by direct deposit or cheque through the Canada Revenue Agency.

“Low and moistest-income Canadians”? Just how wet does one’s income have to be to qualify?This post has been here for over 2 weeks and nobody has noticed the typo?

$234 for single people, or $467 for a family of 4? Two single adults combined would get $468, so by this math, in a family with 2 adults and 2 kids, the kids don’t cost anything to feed? A senior automatically eats less than someone 64 and still working? I don’t. This strikes me as a hastily constructed, but poorly thought out ‘solution’ created mainly to be seen to be doing something,, anything, about inflation. The $234 amounts to $4..50 per week. I would say that’s closer to ’nothing’ than ‘something’.
