Good to face change

It is good to face change and accept these modern conveniences not only for seniors, but our MPs as well.

I disagree with the comments by Murray Rankin (PNR, March 15) in regards to the cuts made by CRA and the fact that they no longer send out the yearly T1 general package to everyone.

It was a waste of money since many people no longer use them.

He makes us seniors look like a bunch of idiots who can no longer make it to the post office if we do need the information from the T1 general package.

My husband and I (both over 80) file on line and if needed we get help by phone. As a result we had our refund in our bank account on March 14.

So, obviously, they did not cut staff where it is needed, since we had good service.

It is good to face change and accept these modern conveniences not only for seniors, but our MPs as well.
