Justin Trudeau is cutting off hundreds of dollars a month for seniors who qualified for CERB and typically receive the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS).

Because the GIS is income-tested, many seniors who received CERB last year are unexpectedly having their GIS payments cut or eliminated this year.

Jagmeet Singh:

“If Justin Trudeau wants to make life better for seniors, he should start today by reversing his cuts to income assistance for seniors. While he’s letting huge corporations take public money and then give bonuses to executives, he’s cutting payments to seniors who aren’t going to have enough to make their bills at the end of the month.”
