Don't Try Taking Mine Back!!!

Oh geeeez... And they wonder why we don't take our government seriously. It turns out that some of the Climate Action Dividend cheques issued earlier in the year were sent to people who didn't qualify to receive them.

Now they are in the process of trying to get the $1.8 million back (18,000 misdirected cheques). I wonder how much money this effort will take?

While I understand that the criteria to determine eligibility for the payment was based on tax returns that may not have accurately reflected the status of the recipient (alive, and residing in BC) as of December 31, 2007, there should have been some kind of allowance for this. For example, if a recipient has since become deceased, the money should go to his or her estate, rather than it having to be returned to the government by the grieving family.

But what do I know... other than the fact that I'm not giving mine back!! lol
