Mr. Speaker, I have indicated in the past that the Liberal Party has acknowledged as a foundation of our pension programs, CPP, OAS, GIS, the guaranteed income supplement, and we believe in those programs. We believe they need to be enhanced and protected.
We consider this pool plan to be a very small tool that will assist some Canadians as a complement to their pension programs. I understand even NDP administrations in provincial governments have recognized the value of this as being a small tool. Why would the NDP oppose a small tool that would at least help some to supplement their pensions?
