Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech.
What I find interesting about this motion is that it calls on the Standing Committee on Health to study the inadequacy of health transfers. We have been talking about that a lot since the throne speech. I actually received a note from one of my constituents talking about how badly the federal government has been neglecting seniors and driving them further into poverty.
I replied that of course we need to increase old age security starting at age 65, not 75. I also talked about the importance of increasing health transfers, because seniors are supported by the provincial and Quebec health care systems.
I would like to hear my colleague's thoughts on that.
