LETTER: Moved to a higher bracket


An open letter to the premier of Nova Scotia:

Dear Premier Stephen McNeil,

I would like to thank you for making me a middle class taxpayer. Last year I was exempt from paying the premium for Pharmacare because my wife and I drew the federal supplement.

Thanks to the changes now made to the Pharmacare program, I will be paying a small premium. Your ceiling of $26,817 now leaves my wife and I, along with our supplement, just a little bit above that amount.

This now puts me in the middle-income bracket. For this, I most heartily thank you. I am now in with the high rollers.

Edward (High Roller) Burke

Pictou

P.S. See you in Florida
