An Immodest Proposal:
For preventing the elderly in Canada from being a burden to their families or country, and for making them beneficial to the public.
By James Robert Inglis
With apologies to Jonathan Swift (Satire Alert!)
I am saddened as I stroll through the grocery stores or malls on the weekend. Everywhere one looks, in every nook and cranny seems to be the lurking object often referred to as the “senior”. The senior can often be observed on their own, but are more likely to be found in packs of three or four. Those tasked with earning an honest living must navigate through their masses as they occupy all available seating or shuffle down the grocery aisles restricting the flow of earnest shoppers with important tasks to accomplish.
