Group says changes by Community Development Trust are discriminatory

Looking for like minded people to join in the fight…

“The Community Development Trust recently came out with their 2009 program for “older workers”. They have changed the eligibility rules so that you now have to be 60 years old rather than 55 to be able to apply. Many people were assured by the CDT last year that if they didn’t apply last year, they could do so this year. That is now untrue. They have arbitrarily changed the eligibility rules after one year of a three year program. I have spoken with our local MLA office and they believe we have been discriminated against and should together voice our dissatisfaction to the government. I and others have also filed a complaint with the BC ombudsman’s office and we are looking for others to join in.
So if you or anyone you know has been let down by the new rules, call me at 923-7386 and I will put a list together and as a group we will be much stronger than individuals.
Thanks, Bob Simnor
