Letters to the Editor

Medical EI is inadequate

Thank you to H. Holbrook for your letter regarding Medical EI.

I also am on medical leave for cancer treatments and my medical EI ran out on April 2 and I do not finish my treatments until May 4, so I also have to go two months without any income. I applied for CPP disability in December but that does not kick in until June and by that time I will be back to work – only part-time as it will take about two months to get my energy level back.

I wish I had know about a petition as I would have signed it in an instant. I hope the politicians with address the problem in the near future. Thank you again.
