PM Trudeau’s pandemic promises: What was kept, what was broken?
In May 12, 2020, Seniors were told they were getting a direct injection of cash to help with immediate pandemic needs. Those entitled to the Old Age Security pension would receive a $300 payment, and $200 if eligible for the Guaranteed Income Supplement. The total cost of the program is estimated to be $2.5 billion. The cash was distributed in July. Laura Tamblyn Watts, the CEO of national seniors advocacy group CanAge, told CTVNews.ca in a statement that, while the support was “appreciated,” it was “notably delayed and far below what the increased costs actually were for transportation, delivery services, internet costs and other expenses.”
