Deuxième lecture, Pensions et pensionnés, Personnes âgées, Régime de pensions du Canada,

Mr. Speaker, there is no doubt that the seniors in my riding have a lot of concerns. I do not come from a wealthy riding. Even though Mont-Tremblant is located in the middle of my riding, there are 42 other towns that have less money, so everyone is concerned about improving the situation of seniors.

This will be the third program we improve, after making changes to two programs. If we had managed to get everything done, we could just walk out of here. However, there is still a lot of work to do, and I am not afraid to work to build a better future for our seniors.

Monsieur le Président, il ne fait aucun doute qu'il y a beaucoup d'inquiétudes chez les aînés de ma circonscription, qui n'est pas riche. Même si Mont-Tremblant se trouve au milieu, il y a 42 autres villes qui ont un peu moins d'argent. Alors, tout le monde se préoccupe de l'amélioration de la situation des aînés.

Après que nous ayons apporté des changements à deux programmes, il s'agit là du troisième programme à améliorer. Si nous avions réussi à tout faire, nous pourrions simplement partir. Cependant, il reste beaucoup de travail à faire, et je ne suis pas gêné de travailler à construire un meilleur avenir pour nos aînés.
