Mr. Speaker, in September the auditor general reported that our social insurance number system was in total disarray.
According to the auditor general there are approximately 311,000 valid social insurance numbers for persons over 100 years of age, even though most of these individuals are deceased.
Related fraud cases are costing Canadian taxpayers millions of dollars. Not one department is willing to take responsibility for SIN reform. Not one department has given the taxpayers a timetable for the completion of this project.
Will the Minister of Human Resources Development step forward, take responsibility and act now?
