Mr. Speaker, first of all I would like to thank the hon. member who has been working on this issue for many years.
The government has proclaimed in the Speech from the Throne that it will be working toward increasing the guaranteed income supplement for low income seniors. Social Development Canada will be taking the lead on issues related to seniors and working with other departments to ensure seniors live the kind of life that we all can dream of. Seniors have contributed tremendously to our country and we owe them that much.
