Quick update to the Facebook generation on today’s budget. Your parents get to retire at 65, you’ll have to work til your 67.
Your parents have all the wealth, you have record student debt, twice the unemployment rate and face unaffordable housing.
Your parents support industrial projects like the tarsands, you don’t. Our government is changing legislation that puts our environment at risk - short term economic gain for our ecological pain.
Directly and indirectly, today’s federal budget is generational warfare and because we don’t vote, we lose.
