Canada’s seniors: Spoiled, or worthy of getting something back after a lifetime of paying into the system?

That question was up for debate on Oct. 25, 2016 at another entry in the Great Canadian Debates.

Margaret Wente and Susan Eng debated the motion “Canada must stop coddling its spoiled seniors” at the Canadian War Museum. Globe and Mail columnist Wente argued in favour; Eng, a lawyer and former executive vice-president of the Canadian Association of Retired Persons, argued against.
