Mr. Speaker, that answer just will not cut it with seniors.
After a lifetime of work, all Canadians deserve security and dignity in their retirement years but the government is failing seniors.
As I have said, I have toured communities across this country. Far too many of the most vulnerable in our society are living in poverty. In far too many communities, the cost of living is rising faster than their GIS and OAS.
Will the government, at the very least, accept the call of the CLC and Canadian premiers and call an emergency summit on pensions?
