PREMIER KENNEY’S ADDRESS

YOUR THOUGHTS

by Dannyelle Lavallee

I have been trying to find an answer to my question for a week and have not had any success reaching out to anyone. I know things are changing everyday, so have been watching and hoping, but I feel like these post secondary young adults are falling between the cracks and I have two sons it’s affecting.

My middle son is graduating from NAITt this month. He now lives at home with us. He doesn’t qualify for any of the funding that has been offered, because he has not worked since his summer job ended in August of 2019. He hasn’t been laid off, doesn’t qualify for EI, CERB, the Emergency Isolation Payment (that nobody can get into to apply for anyways) or anything that has been offered. He is lucky enough to be at home with us now, but what about the kids who can’t go home to their parents? What about the parents who have also lost jobs, etc and can’t support these kids?

My youngest son is just finishing his second year of studies at Ryerson University in Toronto. He shares an apartment with two others, but they pay over $1000 per month in rent, utilities, etc each. Never mind groceries, laundry and regular life expenses. That son also has not had employment since his summer job ended last August. He was interviewing for a Summer Drama Camp Coordinator at Ryerson for his summer employment, as well as involved in several plays that were taking place from April to June. All of those things, which would have been his source of income and savings for the next school year, are cancelled. He also doesn’t qualify for any of the funding being offered by our government and has no way to get a job. There are no rent subsidies, he has a lease on his apartment until May 2021, deferments only last a few months and then the full amount is owed. Who helps those kids live? Again, we are supporting him as much as we can but I have been laid off and most families don’t have income to support another full household at these times.

I haven’t heard of anyone even speaking of these young adults. They seem to be totally forgotten. Who can help them? My kids will be ok, but there are surely others who are suffering.

I find it interesting, though not surprising,@realDonaldTrump always picks a fight with a reporter at his daily press briefing. 2 Thoughts: as a leader Mr. Trump needs the media. And I although I am not sure I don’t think he is a journalism instructor. Answer the questions, sir.I find it interesting, though not surprising,@realDonaldTrump always picks a fight with a reporter at his daily press briefing. 2 Thoughts: as a leader Mr. Trump needs the media.

Background shareclose email Gary McPherson: pioneer for people with disabilities, visionary, executive, family man and everybody’s friend. Gary’s voice was a strong advocate of reason and negotiability. When Gary passed away in 2010, few people carried his vision on. Sadly, we see it today: people with disabilities are being overlooked and not being heard. Gary was a dear friend of mine who opened many doors for me since 1979. This site is now dedicated to Gary’s legacy. I am going to try — in my own voice — to carry on his legacy. But nobody did things like Gary. I miss you every day, my friend .
