Contrary to Pierre Poilievre’s false claims, Justin Trudeau will keep – not cut – pension income splitting for seniors.
It’s on page eight of the Liberal costing document.
The Liberal plan restores fairness to seniors by lowering the eligibility age for Old Age Security and the Guaranteed Income Supplement to 65, and boosting the Guaranteed Income Supplement for single low-income seniors by ten percent.
And despite Pierre Poilievre’s statement, the Liberal plan delivers tax fairness for Canadians. It gives nine out of ten families more in monthly child benefit payments than under the Conservative system. Only Justin Trudeau will raise taxes on the wealthiest one percent – Mulcair and Harper will not.
The Harper plan disproportionately helps the wealthiest few.
