Statement made on 28 April 2009 by Senator Sharon Carstairs (retired)
Hon. Sharon Carstairs:
Honourable senators, my question is directed to the Leader of the Government in the Senate in her role of minister responsible for seniors.
In our report on aging tabled in this chamber last Thursday, we asked the triennial commission reviewing the Canada Pension Plan to examine a number of troubling areas, including a provision that would allow Canadians to pay into CPP while caring for another adult, similar to a provision available now for those caring for children.
Will the minister write to the triennial commission and lend her support for this request made in our report?
