Mr. Speaker, some laws and initiatives with budget implications require a royal recommendation before they can be adopted in the House. It is a symbolic gesture, but it is in the rules.
My question relates to the budget. Inflation makes seniors very vulnerable, especially those the government discriminates against, the ones aged 65 to 75, particularly if they depend on government assistance. As such, and as the need for an economic update becomes increasingly urgent, will the government reconsider its position and increase old age security to a level that will enable seniors to cope?
