Statement made on 11 March 2010 by Senator Sharon Carstairs (retired)

Hon. Sharon Carstairs:

Honourable senators, my question is to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. In January, the Alzheimer Society of Canada issued an extremely disturbing report on the increased incidence of dementia that we can expect in Canada over the next few decades. Last spring, the Senate unanimously endorsed a report entitled: Embracing the Challenge of Aging that outlined our changing demographics and the need to take action now.

Columnists, editorial writers and even business writers are writing weekly — sometimes daily — on the changing demographics taking place in our country. Can the minister tell us what was in the Speech from the Throne or the budget that would give us the faintest hope that the government was listening?
