Sneaky snowbirds could have financial wings clipped by new security program

OTTAWA - Snowbirds beware: The federal government will use its planned border exit-tracking system to avoid paying hundreds of millions of dollars in social benefits now going to people who shouldn't receive them due to absences from Canada.

The story is more about the implementation of a screening program to monitor time spent out of the country.
Refers to snowbirds and savings made in withholding certain benefits... doesn't specify what benefits.
Although the story suggests otherwise, Revenue Canada, Unemployment Insurance, & Canada Border Agency have been sharing Info for years.
This story is not very informative...

Only benefit I received was a visit to a doctor to renew a prescription.... but my taxes, insurances, utilities go on & on...
just like The Energizer Bunny...

That's nothing new, except maybe for expanded verifications and range of benefits being cut. Lots of people have had their unemployment insurance benefits cut after going on vacation.
