Madam Speaker, I always love speeches from the member for Kingston and the Islands because I appreciate his honesty and sincerity. In response to one of my questions earlier he told the House that he was against buying the pipeline. It is amazing that he can say so even though his party was the one that bought it.
He spoke about education, day care services, long-term care homes and standards in these homes. I suggest that he go to Queen's Park, since those are all provincial jurisdictions.
From the beginning of the debate I have been hearing that the Liberals promised to increase old age security for seniors aged 75 and over, which is why seniors under the age of 75 do not get an increase. However, the pandemic started after the last election. Drug and food prices have gone up and seniors have been the hardest hit.
I would like to hear the honest and sincere answer I know he is capable of giving. Why are seniors 75 and under not eligible for this increase?
