Mr. Speaker, during the election campaign, many of my constituents were worried that the previous government had increased the retirement age from 65 to 67. This poorly thought-out decision by the Conservatives caused a lot of anxiety for many residents of Laurentides—Labelle who wanted to plan for retirement.

Can the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development explain how the budget will reverse this bad decision in order to benefit Canadians?

Monsieur le Président, lors de la dernière campagne, plusieurs de mes concitoyens étaient préoccupés par le fait que le gouvernement précédent avait augmenté l'âge de la retraite de 65 à 67 ans. Cette décision mal conçue des conservateurs a causé beaucoup d'anxiété chez les résidants de nombreuses communautés de Laurentides—Labelle qui souhaitent planifier leur retraite.

Le ministre de la Famille, des Enfants et du Développement social peut-il expliquer comment le budget revoit cette mauvaise décision pour avantager les Canadiennes et Canadiens?
