For the first time, seniors outnumber children in Canada, as the population experienced its greatest increase in the proportion of older people since Confederation, according to the latest census data.
The raw numbers:
There are now 5.9 million Canadian seniors, compared to 5.8 million Canadians 14 and under.
"As people get older, they need more health care, more home care, and that puts increasing demands on government spending," says Dr. Frances Woolley, economics professor at Carleton University in Ottawa. "There are big challenges for the government coming on the fiscal side."
Not to worry Canadians. The imported, super-productive, not-at-all inbred, uber-tolerant Muslims are going to generously let old infidel Canadians die pay for all the high taxes through some quality hard work.
