On Sunday, February 26, Jack Harris has organized a discussion panel on OAS. Quoted from his site:
Join me, Jack Harris, your MP for St. John’s East along with fellow Members of Parliament, Ryan Cleary (St. John’s South-Mount Pearl), Irene Mathyssen (London-Fanshawe) and Lysane Blanchette-Lamothe (Pierrefonds-Dollard) for a special town hall. Join us at the Battery Hotel (Riverhead Room) on Sunday, February 26, to discuss the importance of protecting Old Age Security. Doors open at 2pm and the discussion will begin at 2:30pm.
The issue of Old Age Security, and the stability of the fund, has been in the media spotlight lately, with the government seeming to indicate that they will raise the age to receive OAS from 65 to 67, and that other changes are also in the works.
