Harper’s Proposed Changes to Old Age Security
I've heard from many people in Ottawa Centre who are deeply concerned by the recent statements by Prime Minister Stephen Harper that major changes are coming for Old Age Security (OAS) and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS).
New Democrats have been very clear in the House of Commons that the government should live up to its commitments to protect and ensure retirement transfer payments to individuals. It's not just seniors, but future generations of Canadians who are worried about Harper's attack on retirement security.
With the cost of living continuing to rise as well as unemployment, many Canadians are justified in fearing they won't have enough money to retire.
