Ms. Nicole Demers (Laval, BQ)

Mr. Speaker, I listened carefully to my colleague’s very incisive and relevant comments.
He referred to social units in relation to older workers who lose their jobs in mass layoffs, but I think that he could also have referred to people who lack affordable housing, senior citizens who have been fleeced out of the guaranteed income supplement, people who no longer have access to literacy classes because of government cuts, senior citizens whose pensions are increased by only 1.5% or 2% a year, people who helped build the country and our wealth today, and the veterans whose programs and conditions suffer for lack of willingness to improve them.
Could my colleague talk to us a little about this in relation to judges' salaries?
