Mr. Kevin Lamoureux (Winnipeg North, Lib.)
Mr. Speaker, the second petition deals with the guaranteed annual supplement for our seniors.
Our seniors built our country and they are very concerned in terms of affordability. they do not necessarily have the money to buy some of the essentials, whether it is medicare or being able to buy their grandchildren a McDonald's happy meal on their birthday or whatever it might be.
There is a time in which we need to come to the table for our seniors and I would suggest that the time is now. We need to increase that annual supplement, which is what the petition is ultimately asking.
