Petitions to End Senior Poverty

 

Ms. Irene Mathyssen (London—Fanshawe, NDP): Mr. Speaker, I have two petitions today. The first is in regard to seniors poverty, and the real and determined need in this country for a policy to protect seniors so they do not slip below the poverty line. The petitioners ask that there be a committee set up to ensure the provinces, territories, and the provincial government come together to ensure seniors have access to high-quality health care and that their income security is guaranteed.
