Mr. Speaker, one of the interesting comments that my hon. colleague made across the way during her speech, was that now is not the time for this benefit to become universal and maybe they would look at it again at some point. I cannot imagine any other time than now to ensure that everybody is covered and has the supports that they need.
The Liberals had four years in government before to bring forward a universal basic income, but they failed to do that. Hopefully it is something that they move forward with seriously. We come back here time after time to fix these issues that arise from the fact that all of these people are falling through the cracks.
Could the minister explain why not making this a universal benefit is the best policy?
