A fair age for the Old Age Supplement
When the last Conservative government raised the eligibility age to 67 from 65, Daniel fought back. It was a theme in his last campaign and he was happy to support the government in putting the eligibility age for OAS back down to 65.
Daniel also supports a stronger Canada Pension Plan and a higher rate for the Guaranteed Income Supplement
Stopping pension theft once and for all
When SEARS declared bankruptcy, thousands of working people had the rug pulled out from under their retirement. Banks and creditors got first dibs on SEARS’s money, while pensioners were left with the scraps.
Daniel vigorously promoted his NDP colleague’s Private Member’s Bill to give priority to workers’ pension funds when paying off a bankrupt company’s debts, so that the injustice perpetrated on SEARS workers and other before them does not happen again.
