Mr. Speaker, in listening to my colleague's speech, I am reminded of the work that we have had to do in the past year to fix and improve the retirement system for Canadians, who were abandoned by the Conservatives over the past decade. In the first months, we had to restore the age of retirement from 67 back to 65, where it rightfully belongs; we had to increase the GIS by 10% for those who need it the most; and now we are trying to fix the CPP, which is a long-term plan. We need to fix it.

The Conservatives have opposed this with more vigour than anything else we have brought forward. What could the Conservatives have against retired people?

Monsieur le Président, en écoutant mon collègue, je me suis rappelé tout le travail que nous avons dû faire au cours de la dernière année pour corriger et améliorer le système de retraite pour les Canadiens, qui ont été abandonnés par les conservateurs durant la dernière décennie. Au cours des premiers mois, nous avons dû ramener l’âge de la retraite de 67 à 65 ans, là où il doit être; nous avons dû augmenter le Supplément de revenu garanti de 10 % pour les personnes les plus démunies; et voilà que nous essayons de bonifier le RPC, un régime à long terme. Cela s'impose.

Les conservateurs se sont opposés plus vigoureusement à cette mesure qu’à toutes les autres que nous avons proposées. Que peuvent-ils bien avoir contre les retraités?
