This really bombs. Every time I turn around someone is trying to charge for some stupid fee… currently I’m on EI as I am a seasonal farm hand. And I just got a totally unexpected bill in the mail to renew my license, after I just paid 100 dollars last month to do my road test for my full drivers license.. I was under the impression that it was going to cost me 18$ to get a new card but it turns out it costs 108$… it’s impossible to get ahead. There’s no work where I live and I’m trying to business plan to start my own farm in the spring but do you know it costs 60$ just to tell the Canadian government you are starting a business? How is someone supposed to keep up with all these stupid fees while trying to be a farmer and grow good food… drowning in fees. I’m hoping just to get 168$ to cover these two unexpected costs because I really don’t have extra money laying around… I live very frugally and use my pay only for my necessities including my student loan and my car payments and insurance. I just feel like as a farmer I work really hard and no one really respects the importance of farmers in Canada… I don’t think it’s fair that farmers feed the whole country yet don’t make enough wage to barely pay for a car :(
if you love your farmers and see the importance of young agrarians please help a lass out so I can keep my drivers license and register my business. I’d be very appreciative and it would definitely restore my faith in humans. Thank-you. If you can’t donate to me, please at least buy local produce in the summer when you can.
