OTTAWA - Yesterday the Conservatives attempted to undermine the Parliamentary Budget Officer and the Auditor General by releasing their own contradictory report on the changes to old age security.
"Arms length auditors with no political motivation have been unequivocally clear. The Conservatives did not need to cut OAS and GIS. They are sustainable," said NDP Pensions Critic Irene Mathyssen. "This report is an underhanded attempt to justify an unnecessary and unpopular cut to the OAS."
