Mr. Chair, the exceptional circumstances we are currently experiencing are difficult for everyone. I would therefore like to take this opportunity to send a message of hope and encouragement to my constituents in Laval, and more specifically to all our seniors.
I want them to know that our government has been working tirelessly since the beginning of the crisis to ensure the financial security of all Canadians, especially our seniors.
In fact, just recently, our Prime Minister announced tax-free financial assistance of up to $500. This assistance will be paid to all seniors during the week of July 6. This is in addition to the many previous measures already announced to support seniors.
I'm asking seniors not to lose hope and to stay strong. We are here for them.
