Mr. Speaker, it is well-known that over 300,000 Canadian seniors are living in poverty.
The guaranteed income supplement was supposed to prevent this and ensure a dignified retirement for all Canadians. It is simply no longer doing the job. New Democrats are proposing that the GIS be increased by $700 million. That would lift all seniors out of poverty.
Will the Conservative government include this practical, doable idea in its upcoming budget, yes or no?
