Mr. Jack Harris (St. John's East, NDP)
Mr. Speaker, we have heard a lot of talk about supporting people with RRIFs. I wonder if the members opposite could tell us why people who are on old age supplements could not be helped. We were told the other day that $100 a month for seniors on the old age supplement would eliminate about 80% to 85% of the poverty among seniors in the country.
Why did we not hear that from the government in its economic update and not just about people who have retirement savings?
