LAVAL – LES ÎLES – MP François Pilon invites families and citizens of the Laval – Les Îles riding to his “open house” at 1:00 pm on Sunday April 21st, 2013 at 4201 Ste-Rose W. Blvd, in Laval West.
"This will be a joyful occasion for children to have fun within family activities while allowing parents to meet and greet with me and discuss about the topics they are interested “, says the MP. “ I am greatly concern of issues experimented by my constituents and I would be pleased to do whatever I can to help them or to direct them to the right resources."
This will also be a good time for MP Pilon to present, at 2 pm, his Private Members Bill, Bill C-480, An Act to amend the Old Age Security Act (for funereal arrangements), which will be debated in 2nd reading on Friday, April 26th. That bill would allow, if passed, the opportunity for Guaranteed Income Security (GIS) supplement recipients to withdraw 2,500$ (taxable) from their RRSP to purchase pre-need funeral arrangements, without reducing their GIS payments for the following year. During the press conference, citizens, media and members of elderly services community are invited to ask questions on this very important bill, that would help reduce poverty amongst our seniors.
"We look forward to welcome you in large number and to have the pleasure to meet each of you", concludes MP François Pilon.
