Mr. Speaker, I find it really interesting that the member mentioned it was her party that actually put pensions in place. I need to refer her to history, because retirement security has long been a priority for New Democrats. In fact, the first pension legislation in the country was moved forward by one of our party's forerunners, which was the Independent Labour Party, in 1927. It was passed due to the ILP holding the balance of power with the minority King government. I just wanted to indicate that.
The other thing I want to mention is that the Liberal Party members keep going on about what they have done and how they have put pensions at the forefront.
I ask the member, why is it that when the Liberals were in government, they had the largest surplus and they did not increase pensions for seniors?
