The federal government has been hard at work assuring the public that it supports the country’s growing population of seniors, and has taken significant steps to consult with seniors on policy issues. When it comes to pension reform though, the Conservatives aren’t open to suggestions.

Seniors issues have been a hallmark of the Conservative government since Prime Minister Stephen Harper (Calgary Southwest, Alta.) established the National Seniors Council and appointed Conservative Senator Marjory LeBreton as minister of state for seniors in 2007. The post is currently held by Alice Wong (Richmond, B.C.) who assists Human ResourcesMinister Diane Finley (Haldimand-Norfolk, Ont.) by consulting with seniors and representing their concerns in Cabinet.
