    Social grants..

    Interesting story about how some women are drinking heavily to give their babies FAS so they can claim the higher disability grant. Fantastic parenting.

    They should give these women a death sentence, they are bringing into life another being who's going to suffer all their life, I can't believe people could do that

    The Food Bank Program, administered by Social Welfare Canada, is actually proud of the fact:
    "It is distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food vouchers ever!"

    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the Canada Parks and Natural Resources, asks us to, "Please Do Not Feed the Animals."

    Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.
    An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don't. - Anatole France
