Letter: Claims against Trudeau were false
Letter to the editor

Dear editor:

Samuel Young's diatribe ("More promises to be broken on seniors benefits," letter, The Lake Report, Sept.9) against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the federal Liberals is false. 

At least two of my friends and I have received the $500 promised (via direct deposit to bank accounts in the third week of August) for those over 75 on OAS (Old Age Security). Those coming by mail should be arriving now.

This is an interim payment until proposed increases of 10 per cent and 25 per cent in survivor benefits in July 2022.  So, who is telling the truth now?
