Marcel Gagnon Bloc Champlain, QC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-449, an act to amend the Old Age Security Act.

Madam Speaker, the purpose of this bill is to correct a significant inequity in the treatment of the poorest seniors, first by making accessibility to the guaranteed income supplement more automatic and, second, by making the government meet the same conditions when it owes money to the poorest members of society as when it is owed money, which is by applying full retroactivity.
