In the US you can live off of disability. That's why it's so hard. In most Commonwealth countries it's significantly easier because the checks are smaller. The UK has more people on disability and most of them only receive a few hundred pounds a month, whereas in the US, even without 100% disability, you can haul in $3500 a month.I gave you the actual Canadian info as it is now (showing that I am not confused about Canadian programs but you are), regardless of what US programs may be like now, as I said above. So it is unclear to me how you think that American worker's comp is relevant to any Canadian benefits program that exists now or why I would have confused that with Canadian programs. I don't know anything about US programs so how could I confuse your progs with ours? I have not claimed to know anything about US programs however except as regards Canadian gov types rejoicing that as of 1999 or so Canada's rules would be as tight or tighter than they were in the states.
You said originally that since welfare is easy to get in the US of A, it must be easy to get in Canada too. I gave you the reasons showing why I see that it is not easy to get in Canada.
I've seen what your streets in the USA look like and I'm pretty sure I know at least a little about how the USA treats disabled, poor, women, immigrants etc. regardless of what programs you have. I've had more than one American friend tell me how impossible it is to get welfare disability in some states, so difficult that they have to hire lawyers to appeal. Fact is, I don't make the rules, I just researched them and you have the opportunity to do that do too using the links that I posted, the only info that actually applies to Yaniv as he in BC, Canada not the states.
Surely now you recognise that what I said at first is that US law is not applicable in Canada as far as income benefits are concerned or anything else. Why would you insinuate that I could be bothered not to tell the truth about this? There’s no gain for me making up crap about this man or his life.
I feel that this could have been avoided if you were reading the full thread and if you had read my posts suggesting people stop uselessly speculating about whether or not Yaniv was on welfare.

Now that Yaniv has been charged $6000, one wonders what BC Employment and Assistance will think of that.
