Statement made on 07 June 2011 by Senator Art Eggleton
Hon. Art Eggleton:
Honourable senators, let me ask more specifically about seniors, since I mentioned them. The amount that is being allocated is simply not enough to make a real difference in the lives of those who need our help. The plan would help only 600,000 of the approximately 1.6 million seniors who receive GIS. These are the poor ones. Will this government commit to doing more? Will the government help all seniors to live out of poverty and to live in dignity?
