Bus-pass clawback adds insult to injury

Re: “Disability benefits cut by bus-pass expense,” Aug. 30.

I, too, received the “generous” increase and have had the $52 taken from me. They have still not sent me my new bus pass, which I will need on Sept. 1.

About all one can say is that once again, the provincial government has failed me.
