Business of Supply


Mr. Speaker, I listened to my colleague opposite’s remarks, in particular, with respect to his evident passion for seniors, which I certainly share. I remind him that it was our government that brought in income splitting for seniors, which I recognize does not apply to all seniors. However, it is an important step in our government’s tool box to help Canadian families and seniors through these challenging years, including the tax-free savings account.

Throughout this debate I have not heard much from my colleagues in terms of the positive ways that we have been helping Canadians. My question to the hon. member is this. How does he think those programs are working to help Canadians? Does he not think it best to work on job creation and work with employers in the short term to get through this challenging global recession, and then look at CPP reform in the longer term?
