Snowbird/Retiree Visa

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I recently received a newsletter from Moody’s Gartner stating that the proposed “snowbird visa” legislation to increase the amount of time which snowbirds can spend in the U.S. is a potential “tax bomb,” as the “day count” for the purposes of the snowbird visa is different than the day count for tax […]

Travel Health Insurance is a Tax Deductible Expense, and more

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, As usual, I read CSANews from cover to cover for its valuable information and advice concerning travel and medical insurance during our annual stay in Florida for the winter months.

Needs of our health and education systems should be met!

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I cannot believe that we will be subjected to Michael Coren’s extreme right-wing ranting issue after issue in your CSANews publications. I have asked you in the past to provide a balanced approach to relevant issues. Why does this arrogant, narrow-minded person warrant the right to be your only “political” columnist? The […]

However, such benefits only apply to ex-members of the Canadian Armed Forces, not its expat allies. As a long-standing member of the Korean Veterans […]

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, It is my understanding from information in a letter to “Bird Talk” included in the latest issue of CSANews, that retired federal public servants have had their medical coverage increased from $100,000 to $500,000 for a continuous 40-day period. Why should they be treated so differently from other retired people? They earned […]

Dear Mr. Don Slinger, You sound like a man of action, so this letter is coming to you. If that’s not your department, I’m sure you will send it to the right place. Enclosed is a copy of a letter received from my doctor. He explains why he is leaving his practice. I felt the […]

Political Advertisements

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I was very surprised to see an ad for the Ontario PC Party on the back page of the Fall issue of CSANews. I don’t believe it is in the best interests of the Association to accept advertisements from any political party anywhere in Canada. An ad like this appears to give […]
