Lyle Attfield is protesting at the legislature.

Local man takes a stand

Man with disability unhappy with government benefits

Lyle Attfield, 54, is mad and he is planning on staging a protest in front of the legislature for the duration of the election. He is charging  the Liberals with what he calls “Democide,” murder of the disabled.

Once the writ is dropped he will be protesting being treated “like discarded garbage.”

He doesn’t like the benefit he receives, which he says are too low at $906.42 per month. On this amount he is expected to pay rent, eat, buy clothes and pay for some medical and dietary supplements.

“Bascially they don’t want anyone on the system. They are squeezing like a boa constrictor, degrading and destroying their will.” Attfield was once gainfully employed in the RV upholstery business but physical impairments have taken over and he can bo longer work. He has dyslexia which further hampers any work which is not physical. Those on disability benefits can earn extra but if they can’t work, they can’t earn.

He’s looking for people to join him in his protest against what he sees as injustice and discrimination. He also plans to protect frakking and other issues that he sees as important.

Attfield can be reached at 250-900-5437 or lyleattfield@gmail.com but he can’t afford to fix his computer.
