Two-Tier Seniors? All Seniors Need Help.

Last week I stood in the House of Commons to voice the concerns of Seniors in Simcoe-Grey who are facing tough times.

Yesterday, the 2021 Federal Budget was announced and I was hoping to see real support in the budget for seniors.

But instead of taking action to help all Seniors, the government instead decided to divide them into two-tiers!

Those aged 75 & over will receive a 10% increase to OAS payments, along with a one-time $500 payment in August 2021.

Seniors 65 to 74 are left with nothing in this budget.

While I am happy to see something, we cannot forget about our Seniors between 65 to 74.

I look forward to debating the budget and continuing to advocate for Seniors.
