Deuxième lecture, Pensions et pensionnés, Petites et moyennes entreprises, Régime de pensions du Canada,

Mr. Speaker, to be fair, you had not mentioned it either.

I think there is an opportunity for businesses to plan ahead. This would not even start for three more years and would not be at full scale until 2025. Businesses have an opportunity to prepare for this change. It is not a huge change, from that side of things.

The important thing is that we are planning for the future so that our seniors, later, are able to take care of themselves, like our ancestors, if we can call them that, planned for us today. I think it is very important that we do this work and do not slow down or slack off on it.

Monsieur le Président, soit dit en toute équité, vous n’en avez rien dit non plus.

Je pense que nous offrons aux entreprises le temps nécessaire pour dresser des plans. Cette mesure ne commencera pas à s’appliquer avant trois ans, et n’entrera pleinement en vigueur qu’en 2025. Les entreprises ont le temps de voir venir. Ce n’est d’ailleurs pas un changement d’une très grande ampleur pour elles.

L’important, c’est de préparer l’avenir, pour permettre à nos aînés de prendre soin d’eux-mêmes, comme nos ancêtres, si on peut les appeler ainsi, l'ont fait pour nous. J’estime qu’il est très important que nous abordions à ce problème sans tergiverser.
